Scribner’s Monthly an Illustrated Magazine, May of 1878. This is a soft cover magazine marked as volume XVI and No. 1. Magazine was a type of periodical similar to magazines today like Reader’s Digest, Life, or Time. It contains various articles, short stories, and more. Appears to be in very good condition showing some wear, and brittleness to the edges of the book but is still very nice. Several nice antique ads on the back cover.
