Published in four bi-annual volumes at the Lawnmarket of Edinburgh by Patrick Geddes and Colleagues from spring 1895 to winter 1896/7, The Evergreen: A Northern Seasonal was a Celtic revival magazine edited by William Sharp. The Y90s digital edition, edited by Lorraine Janzen Kooistra, is based on the physical copies held in Ryerson University Library Archives and Special Collections, supplemented by copies in a private collection. The flipbook version created by the Internet Archive connects to the Evergreen scans in the University of Toronto’s Fisher Rare Books Library. The differences among these copies are especially apparent in the bindings. Charles Mackie’s embossed leather bindings are visible only in the Yellow Nineties’ html and pdf versions, which are scanned from the private collection.
The Database of Ornament allows users to study The Evergreen’s textual ornaments in individual detail and in comparison to textual ornaments in The Dial, The Green Sheaf, The Pageant, and The Savoy.
