February 12, 1853

DODGE'S LITERARY MUSEUM, Boston, Feb. 12, 1853  While literary periodicals are otherwise lacking in "newsy" content, this issue is of interest for the huge and quoter detailed engraving in the masthead.
The masthead takes over half of the front page making it a fine issue for display. It shows various people in what would appear to be a museum of some sort.
Otherwise the content is almost entirely literary items. Sixteen pages, 10 by 14 inches, a slight bit of damp staining near the spine, nice condition.
