This magazine was edited by George Macdonald from 1869 to 1873. During the time-frame of 1870 he first introduced At the Back of the North Wind, second half, and Ranald Bannerman's Boyhood, two of his prized full-length children's stories. This volume, well-loved as it is, represents one of GMD's crowning achievements as author and editor. In addition, the many remarkable reproductions of Arthur Hughes finest drawings, as interpreted here by the Dalziel Bros, chief engravers of the day. A unique and rare chance to own a marvelous and sublime pairing of gifted artists and friends! The very first appearance of these two GMD favorites!
