SUMMARY: This is one of the coolest of the early women's magazines. I only have about 200 of around 500 issues. So there's a lot of scrolling down through empty stubs of entries. Any years I don't have any issues of at all, I've blocked so that you won't have to scroll quite as much. I've also broken down this title's bibliography into rough decades(all the 1800s issues are on this page) with the links to the decades at the top of the bibliography and at the bottom. The 16-page Quartos(newspaper format) extend further than I've seen stated in other bibliographies. Most of the patterns have to be mail ordered(i.e. not printed in the magazine itself). The exceptions to this are the crochet, tatting, and knitting patterns. I need to make another pass through to add a subtitle "Pattern" to many listings in order to make it clear which patterns are actually in the magazine.

The Question and Answer section of the 1890's issues was quite extensive, often as long as all the pages with articles and workbasket projects put together. I did not enter a synopsis of these pages - maybe a project for the second run through... I also need to go back through and note which project is shown on the front of each of the covers.

Anyone with more information about this publication, or has issues to donate or sell, can contact me through My Contact Page.

Notes: Issue number is about 11 issues further than I would expect by a monthly count - may have had a brief period where they came out bi-monthly? Found a bayberry reference for Pot Pourri Pillows- "The fresh new leaves of the bayberry have a very pungent odor..."

Volume 7, Issue #12: February 1894
Page Count: 16
Cover Artist: no cover art
Notes: This issue is a quarto(newspaper format, folded in half). This is likely the first issue of "Modern Priscilla" that included an article on tatting. I can't say definitely because I don't own all the early issues, but the article is written like an introduction and tutorial for tatting - suggesting it is new to the publication. The article was written by the person who provides a lot of their crochet and knitting patterns, but only goes by their initials "J.R.W." It is interesting how many contributors to these early magazines only used their initials, or only their first name, and later their husband's(by the 1940's). Was it scandalous to be a writer? Were they hiding their scribblings from their husbands? Did they not want their relatives to know?

Notes: I about fell out of my chair laughing when I read a small fill-in column titled "Children's Food"- it was a disguised ad for Postum Food Coffee. It began with the statement, "Many children at school," said a student of children, "appear to be stupid when they are only badly nourished." It goes on from there giving advice on how to (apparently)cure stupidity in children. I have no wish to make light of extreme poverty - but no one who could afford subscribing to women's magazines was going to cure their child of stupidity with coffee substitute...
