The cover was designed by Bruce Porter and this issue contains work by Robert Louis Stevenson, Gelett Burgess, and Bruce Porter. "The Lark", a humorous magazine, was founded, literally on a lark, by Gelett Burgess and others in 1895. The magazine was far more popular than its founders has intended, eventually having approximately 3,000 subscribers. "The Lark" contributed greatly to Burgess becoming important figure in the San Francisco Bay Area literary renaissance of the 1890s. The official final issue of "The Lark" was issue Number 24, published for April 1897. However, a final issue, Number 25 ("The Epi-Lark"), was published May 1, 1897. Volumes of "The Lark" were later published, but the individual issues, such as this quite early number of the magazine are EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO THE MARKET.
