Side-stapled, thick card stock with green titles. The word "Sample" is stamped in the upper left corner, probably indicating that this was a copy used to solicit subscriptions and ads. The first two pages of this copy are loose but could easily be tipped in by a conservator. Otherwise, this copy has very little wear -- minor damage at bottom of spine and some ink residue on back edges from the printing process. Having noted the two loose pages, I still doubt that very many copies of this elusive publication exist. The Horizon grew out the Niagara movement and was DuBois's second foray into periodical publication. The magazine printed work from other sources but also original essays, poems and perhaps stories by its own staff. After the NAACP began in 1910, DuBois gave up The Horizon for The Crisis. Copies of this magazine are quite uncommon. As best I can determine, WorldCat lists holdings of individual issues in fewer than ten institutions and none of this particular issue. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 26 pages
