Greetings, Mr. Pinkwater:

Can you give me some info, please?

Recently at an estate sale I bought a 15-volume hardbound set of St. Nicholas — illustrated stories for boys and girls. These are dated about 1915 through maybe 1923, by Century Publishers.

The reading is simply delightful! Was St. Nicholas a magazine? Can you be so kind to tell me anything you can about this publication?

Thanks — love your Saturday NPR.

Daniel replies:

I believe it was a magazine--but I know nothing about it other than that. You should have no touble finding lots of information on the web.
