Lot description Show orginal version

[Pilgrim of Poland, Political and Literary Magazine], a collection of 24 issues, the first of which was entitled "Prospect | Copernicus" , dated November 4, 1832, the next ones bore the names of prominent Poles, the last one appeared on March 25, 1833 "Kosciuszko". Censorship by the French authorities did not allow the journal to be titled normally.
The first volume was edited by Eustachy Januszkiewicz. Paris, in the printing house of A.Pinard, at 15 Voltaire Nadrzecze, (from the issue of 15.02.1833 the note corrected - ... in the printing house and gisernia of A.Pinard...).

Magazine, no binding, issues 1-24, each 4 pp (one with supplement), format 22 x 13.8 cm.

Thecomplete first volume lacks a prospectus and a collectible cover (perhaps identical to the prospectus?) with a list of subscribers issued after issue 24 (on April 1, 1833?), bearing the title "Pilgrim of Poland. A journal of national politics and literature dedicated (from November 4, 1832, to April 1, 1833), and there is no supplement to the January 20, 1833 issue (1str.).

Major changes occurred after issue 24. The magazine's format and editorial changed. The omnibus cover to the second volume (numbered "Part I." - as if it were a new magazine) introduced the title "Polish Pilgrim, Political and Literary Journal," while the cover of the first issue of the 2nd volume itself bore the title "Polish Pilgrim. A National Political and Literary Journal," at which time Adam Mickiewicz was already in charge of editing, followed by Bohdan Jasinski in the second half of the year. Subsequent issues of the second volume carried only the designation of the first [and subsequent, up to 32] half-sheets, each half-sheet had 4 pages, sometimes the numbers were double.

Condition: loose issues, single pages loose, heavy soiling, yellowing, spotting, dampstaining, single issues with underlinings, one issue with blue "Tow.Lit.Pol." stamp. and library sticker, minor tears, creases, one sticker/cover mark, covering part of text (single columns and lines)
