Sizeable collection of this early proto-Fabian publication, edited by the notable socialist and women's rights activist Annie Besant (1847-1933). Contents include serialized biographies and novels, poetry, puzzles (both word and picture), and a "Young Folks Corner." Among the columns featured in each issue is the "Peeps through a Microscope." Besant worked closely with the Hyderabad (Sind) National Collegiate Board in India, and her interest in Indian and Hindu culture is apparent from the very earliest issues of this journal.
