William Doxey, San Francisco May 1895 - April 1897, 14 x 20.5 cm, 2 bound volumes & various leaflets
First edition and complete series of the humorous end-of-century magazine, The Lark. Issue 1 contains Gelett Burgess' famous, absurd poem entitled The Purple Cow.
Bound in publisher's beige cloth, illustrated boards.
Rubbed cloth has some minor cuts and parts missing.
There are 5 leaflets, one of which is signed by Gelett Burgess, as well as the folding leaflet entitled The Purple Cow, signed and monogrammed by the same.
The Lark magazine greatly contributed to the literary renaissance of the 1890s in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded by Gelett Burgess and Bruce Porter, the journal quickly attracted eclectic literary contributors who were nicknamed “les Jeunes”: Porter Garnett, Carolyn Wells, Willis Polk, Yone Noguchi amongst others. Local artists, in particularly Ernest Peixotto, Florence Lundborg and Maynard Dixon contributed to the illustrations of the texts and covers.
