Presumably that is two magazines, <a href="">Nash's Pall Mall Magazine</a> and Metropolitan Magazine. HathiTrust provides full view of The Pall Mall, vols 1-53, 1893 to 1914.

HDL copy shows the first issue of volume 54, as printed, manually corrected as v53, the seventh such issue of what had been a series of 6-issue volumes (p. 815, see also the announcement, pp. 1009); the HathiTrust copy of bound volume 53 contains no such page at the beginning of the August issue, the last as The Pall Mall Magazine

Not found 2017-11-04 at HathiTrust: Nash's Magazine and the merged Nash's Pall Magazine, v54-79 in part, 1914 to 1927; nor the subsequent renditions to 1937 as The Pall Mall relaunched, mid-volume 79, and merged again.

appears to be from 1st printing, same as HDL copies, but "Contents" is corrupt
"Actions and Reactions" appears atop and "The Puzzler" (poem) does not

The late 1909 collection Actions and Reactions contains the novella --that is, the novelette and magazine extracts. The Macmillan eds., UK and Canada, appear to be identical but the US ed. is reset, with a different span of pages, typographical differences, even a few different wordings. Yet the Advertising Section prices are all given in shillings and pence. The section headings in the collection (3 eds., apparent 1909 printings viewed at HathiTrust) differ slightly from those in the chapbook (2 eds., apparent 1909 printing of the US ed. viewed at HathiTrust).

• Aerial Board of Control
• Notes
• Correspondence
• Review [no 's']
• [none]

The advertisements simply appear under subheadings of the purported 2000 A.D. advertising section: "Miscellaneous", "Safety Wear for Aeronauts", "Appliances for Air Planes", "Air Planes and Dirigible Goods", "Air Planes and Dirigibles", "Bat-Boats", "Air Planes and Starters", "Accessories and Spares" (identical to the chapbook in wording if not design).

680, other side of the same leaf presumably
681-694, ads; p681 begins with a book forthcoming May, so these may be the advertisements in April number, the frontispiece and p677-694 may be all of the unnumbered pages for April, 10 leaves
1-174, all ads, perhaps from the first five issues; these are images of 87 leaves, so that hypothesis implies many unnumbered leaves in the April issue than in some others; apparently these include no covers or Contents, so the comparison is 87 leaves to 8 leaves

2 of 3 from a heavy contributor to Wikipedia and ISFDB.

Concerning the magazine generally known as The London Magazine (, the index shows title The Harmsworth London Magazine in use for only three issues, the first half of vol 7, from Aug 1901. --between The Harmsworth Magazine (v5-6) and The London Magazine (from v7 #4).

That may be true of the single issues for which I have no information before v29.

HathiTrust Digital Library provides full view of bound volumes 1-11, 29-31, 33.

Title pages of the bound volumes show The Harmsworth Magazine (v5-6) followed by The Harmsworth London Magazine (v7-10 to Jul 1903). See the volume 10 title page at HathiTrust (

Paging forward from that link target:

page 1, "Important Notice", refers to the magazine in-line as (quote) the "London Magazine".

page 3, the first text content begins. Evidently the volume as bound includes no title page/header, table of contents, front cover (nor back cover, see pages 128 129) and thus --no information how it may or may not have been distributed under/as The London Magazine or any other name --although it does use that name as running header styled THE LONDON MAGAZINE. (with dot).

The volume 11 (Aug 1903--Jan 1904) title page ( shows The London Magazine. .

The HathiTrust collection ends with vol 11 to Jan 1904, until vol 29 from Sep 1912.

Volume 29 at HathiTrust spans 1-876pp with interspersed roman-numeral advertising pages. It contains no title page or index. The first three issues show that text contents of each begins on the third page of its paginated span (pp 3, 147, 291) under a header that displays "The London Magazine" and volume, date, number.

3 of 3 from a heavy contributor to Wikipedia and ISFDB, who does not plan much contribution to The FictionMags Index and did not read relevant instructions.

Here is some data on four London Magazine issues now missing or incomplete in the Index. Lines that begin with colon (:) are remarks that may be useful or interesting but do not belong in the Index, except perhaps some as brief annotations. Concerning "[ (Bastables) ]" see the earlier note "FictionMags: Bastable series by Nesbit needs consolidation" (1 of 3).

McClure's Magazine 27.1, p3-4

" Once upon a time a boy called Dan and a girl called Una lived in England upon a farm a thousand years old and not very far from where Caesar landed to conquer the Britons ...
When [Puck, or Robin Goodfellow] met Dan and Una, ... he gave them each a clod of earth, said Words over it, and made them free of all Old England, and all the people who had lived on their Farm for three thousand years.
... many folk must have come and gone there.
And Puck he knew them all! "

quoted in The Minneapolis Journal, Wednesday 1906-05-02 p14 (viewed at via google search), in "The Magazines"

[But] Puck after each talk magicked away their memories with the Strong Magic of Oak, Ash, and Thorn, and they went back to their home quite comfortable and ordinary.
That is one of the reasons why these tales have been so difficult to collect. ...

apparently new for the collection, altho related to "Robin Goodfellow" and to The Delineator Editor's Note
Kipling's "Introduction" was first published in the collection, probably. It is not published online, nor discussed or even listed, by the Kipling Society--although it is included in many editions of the collection, if not all.


"Once upon a time, Dan and Una, brother and sister, lived in the English country, had the good fortune to meet with Puck, alias Robin Goodfellow ..."
... as I have tried to explain in a book called Puck of Pook's Hill.
A year or so later, ...
... Dan and Una would find the strangest sort of persons in their gardens and woods.
In the stories that follow I am trying to tell something about those people."

Puck, the only one of the fairies and heathen gods who loved Old England too well to be driven from her by modern disbelief, is in the habit of appearing to Dan and Una, two modern English children living near the Channel coast. Each time he conjures up from the past people who centuries ago trod the ground upon which he and the children are standing. Each time, when these knights and queens, saints and artists, doctors, centurions and Jews have told the tale of the long-ago they lived in, Puck touches the children with the magic of oak, ash and thorn, and straightway they forget all they have seen and heard--till next time. Back of these stories and tying them all together is a big idea--that of picturing forth to the reader the very heart and soul of the great English people, of which we are a part--the forming and growth, through the centuries, of the feelings, opinions and ambitions that are live to-day in our own breasts. Roman, Pict, Saxon, Dane, Norman[] --we meet them all, and back of each stirring tale and playing through every word of it are shadowy pictures of great events and the changing manspirit that bit by bit have made--us.

NOTE:--Puck, the only one of the fairies and heathen gods who loved Old England too well to be driven from her by modern disbelief, is in the habit of appearing to Dan and Una, two modern English children living near the Channel coast. Each time he conjures up from the past people who centuries ago trod the ground upon which he and the children are standing. Each time, when these knights and queens, saints and artists, doctors, centurions and Jews have told the tale of the long-ago they lived in, Puck touches the children with the magic of oak, ash and thorn, and straightway they forget all they have seen and heard--till next time. Back of these stories and tying them all together is a big idea--that of picturing forth to the reader the growth through the centuries of the race-soul of the great English people[] of which we are a part. The central idea lies in the first of the series, "Cold Iron", and in each is shown how the land itself compels the men it breeds to save it in some fashion or another. For all are servants of the Iron Ring: "What else could I have done?" say they.
Roman, Pict, Saxon, Dane, Norman, Englishman, American --we meet them all, and back of each stirring tale and playing through every word of it are shadowy pictures of great events and the changing man-spirit that bit by bit have made--us.

The Complete from

From School Library Journal
Grade 3 Up-This volume calls itself The Complete Just So Stories because it includes one additional Taffy adventure ("The Tabu Tale") not included in the first edition, as well as "Ham and the Porcupine," the last story of Kipling's career, neither of which are usually printed with the collection. These additions are neither better nor worse than the other just-sos: this volume's real distinguishing feature is its illustrations. Brent's colorful, realistic, slightly naive watercolors recall Persian miniatures in their composition and style. What makes them stand out is their borders, bright mosaics of tiny multicolored tesserae, rich with lapis blue and gleaming with gold, in varying geometric patterns. A narrow strip of similar design edges each page. This book is undeniably lovely, but those who purchased the edition with David Frampton's woodcuts (HarperCollins, 1991) or the version with Safaya Salter's paintings (Holt, 1987) should not feel any discontent either.
