Description

Harper's Bazaar is an American magazine founded by Harper & Brothers in New York in 1867. On the cover of its inaugural issue, the magazine describes itself as "a repository of fashion, pleasure, and instruction."
Inspired by the Berlin magazine Der Bazar, the magazine features the latest fashion trends, fictional writing as well as articles on social etiquette, culture, and politics. 
Harper's Bazaar is considered one of the first mainstream publications to endorse the women's suffrage movement and regularly runs articles on women's educational rights and work opportunities for women. 
The magazine's first editor is Mary Louise Booth, who has been one of the first female reporters for The New York Times and is a women's rights advocate.
William Hearst purchases the magazine in 1913.
The included files only serve as an example illustration of the magazine.
