From Wikipedia

Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine was a 19th century literary magazine published in Philadelphia from 1868 to 1915, when it relocated to New York to become McBride’s Magazine. It merged with Scribner’s Magazine in 1916.
Lippincott’s published original works, general articles, and literary criticism. It is indexed in the Reader’s Guide Retrospective database, and the full-text of many issues are available online from Project Gutenberg, and in various commercial databases such as the American Periodicals Series from Proquest.
