From the Athenæum: Review of The Evergreen vol. 1
We have received from “Patrick Geddes & Colleagues,” of Edinburgh (London, Fisher Unwin), the first number of the Evergreen, so called after the well-known miscellany of Allan Ramsay. Messrs. Constable & Co. have done their best by providing luxurious type and paper, and the illustrations are of varying excellence. The calf-love of ‘Robene and Makyn,’ as set forth by Henryson, is dramatically illustrated. Anoteher pathetic study is the ‘Pipes of Arcady,’ and the drawing of the Tron and St. Giles’s gives the due touch of local colour. It is an excellent arrangement that the full-page illustrations are faced by fair spaces of blank paper, which rest the eye.
