Good idea, David. There is one seller with a full 1902 run, but it's a bit pricey for my needs, since I own so many 1902 issues. |
But I did look to see if the magazine had been scanned by anyone. No, it had not. Bummer for me.
The New York Public Library has a full run. So I'll have to run over to the main branch on 5th Avenue and see it. It's a reference item, not for lending. Oh, well. The price we pay for knowledge.
By the way, I wrote my master's thesis in the third-floor reading room at the main branch. What a majestic public space, measuring 297 feet long by 78 feet wide. Long oak tables are lit by elegant bronze lamps, beneath ceilings fifty-two foot tall, decorated by murals of vibrant skies and billowing clouds.
