Peter F. Collier (1849-1909) and Robert J. Collier (1876-1918) were the men behind publishing giant Peter F. Collier & Son, and their organization ranked among America's most prestigious firms. Collier's Weekly, which appeared in various forms from 1888 through 1957, was at the forefront of new publishing technologies, such as the use of halftone images, and was noted for its fiction and investigative journalism. Collier's publications regularly employed the best illustrators of the day, and the company frequently produced collections of favorite works from their popular periodicals.
Additional contributors include A.B. Frost, Philip R. Goodwin, Edward Penfield, Harrison Fisher, Albert Sterner, Orson Lowell, A.I. Keller and many others. Major artists like Parrish and the other biggest names are represented with a number of images, with many in full color. The reproduction here is excellent.
