New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1915. First edition. Periodical. This March 1915 issue of Scribner’s Magazine contains writing from Nobel Prize winning author John Galsworthy (1867-1933) and full page color plates of the building of the Panama Canal. This Vol. LVII, No. 3 issue is in very good minus condition, particularly so considering the age and inherent fragility of the format. The binding is square and tight with some light chipping and loss at the spine and a missing triangular portion of the upper corner of the rear cover. The front cover retains its yellow color despite overall spotting and browning. The contents are bright, clean, and free of markings.
This issue includes a portion of the serialization of The Freelands by John Galsworthy, English novelist most well known for The Forsyte Saga and recipient of the 1932 Nobel Prize in Literature. This issue also contains a 19 page article on the building of the Panama Canal including four full page color plates. Item #004880
