The Carrier Dove, Volume VI 1889
Item Details
Description
Heading: (California - San Francisco)
Author: Schlesinger, Julia, editor.
Title: The Carrier Dove, Volume VI. Nos. 1 -52.
Place Published: [San Francisco]
Publisher:[Library of Spiritual Experience]
Date Published: 1889
Description:

[6], 830 pp. Engraved title page. Illustrated with drawings and from photographs. Printed in triple columns. (4to) custom full brown morocco decorated in gilt, professionally rebacked, with large portion of original spine strip laid in; patterned endpapers, all edges gilt.

"In September, 1883, The Carrier Dove was started in Oakland, by Mrs. J. Schlesinger, as a lyceum paper. It soon outgrew its juvenile character, and assumed the proportions and nature of a first-class illustrated monthly magazine. It was the first spiritual magazine in the world that made a specialty of publishing portraits and biographical sketches of prominent Spiritualists. After being issued three years and a half as a monthly, it was changed into a weekly...The Dove continued until 1893...when the name was changed to the Pacific Coast Spiritualist, and in form it was changed to a large eight-page weekly newspaper." - From Julia Schlesinger's own account of the journal. Very scarce.

"The journal was decidedly in the reform camp and itself functioned as an example of the move towards fields in which women could support themselves financially, in the case of the journal as job printers. In its last years the journal carried regular articles by E.D. Babbitt, W.E. Coleman, Helen Wilmans, Moses and Mattie Hull and Lois Waisbrooker, each volume containing pictures and biographies of leading spiritualists, novelettes, bad poetry, letters from readers, all supplemented by exhortations on woman's suffrage and the wonders of a mild socialism and utopianism, together with extended advertising pages. Most notable among the journal's content were two long series of articles by W.E. Coleman attacking H.P. Blavatsky." - From the database of Pat Deveney.
