From Current Literature: Review of The Yellow Book

The fourth volume of the Yellow Book is out, and
doubtless, says the New York Tribune, there is joy in
the hearts of its makers and readers because this pre-
cious bantling has weathered its first year. It is as
perky as ever and may live to a green old age, but that
is not likely; and if the length of its existence is dwelt
upon at all, it is only with reference to the probable
endurance of the movement of froth and silliness on
which it has thus far been based. It is not creditable
that the jig-saw and blue-light school will be suffered to
continue its antics many years longer. It must pass as
the Bunthorne madness passed.
