Iowa City: The State Historical Society of Iowa, 1965. Staple-bound Softcover. Very Good. Item #061265
Pages clean and bright; no owners' marks; a line of mild discoloration along the right rear and some gentle wear along the edges, otherwise excellent. 42pp. Articles by Benjamin F. Shambaugh, John C. Parish, John E. Briggs, and William J. Petersen about the concept behind this magazine, palimpsests in general, and the history of this publication in particular. Poignant to find this just as the State of Iowa is shutting down large portions of the State Historical Society in favor of chucking it all online - no more reading rooms, few offices, minimal access to artifacts, documents, and other collections - listed in 2015, shortly after legislators voted to end the historian's role in our history.
