Comments

An elaborate souvenir sold to benefit the German Hospital in New York City. The compilers, Henry Villard and Carl Schultz, worked doggedly on getting American authors to send in manuscript contributions, which are reproduced here in facsimile and which include works by Curtis, Lowell, Howells, Whittier, Parke Godwin, Stedman, Holmes, Mary Mapes Dodge, Moncure Conway, Stockton, et al. The artistic contributors, almost all magazine illustrators, are equally impressive.
