Subsequent to my posting L. Adams Beck’s story yesterday, our research director Carole Gerson suggested I look for other illustrators and authors online to try to determine which magazine these four stories were published in. Lo and behold, Ida Kahn’s “Daughters of Cathay” is catalogued online in the FictionMags Index. Having discovered the title of the magazine, Asia: The American Magazine on the Orient, I then found an actual copy of one of the issues containing L. Adams Beck’s writing for purchase at AbeBooks. Tempting, but no…

So, the correct bibliographic information for the four articles is as follows:

Beck, L. Adams [Elizabeth Louisa Moresby Beck]. “A Court Lady in Old Japan.” Asia: The American Magazine on the Orient (December 1920): 1041-46.

—. “The Emperor and the Silk Goddess.” Asia: The American Magazine on the Orient (February 1921): 141-45+.

—. “The Flute of Krishna.” Asia: The American Magazine on the Orient (January 1922): 28-32.

—. “Wisdom Which is One With Love.” Asia: The American Magazine on the Orient (September 1922): 733-38+.
