(1884 – 1885)

1. English, 1884-5 [Periodical].
The Young Mineralogist and Antiquarian. Published monthly by T.H. Wise. Wheaton, Illinois, 1884-5.†

2 parts [?].

Extremely rare. A very early American periodical featuring minerals and archaelogy as its principal theme. Why such a journal appeared in Wheaton, Illinois is unclear, but its separation from the principal publishing and mineralogical community of the east coast probably contributed to its short life of perhaps 18 months.
