The "geocities" site states: I think that 'The Quiver' was first published in January 1866 [or possibly 1865] and may have published its very last edition in October 1926. But I stand to be corrected on that data.

My two volumes are of 764 pages each, each page being 6 3/4 inches wide and 9 1/4 inches high. Quite thick volumes, as you can imagine! Moral and religious in its content.

An antique magazine sales site has a volume of 1886 Quiver for sale:

The Quiver Vol XXI, 1886: London: Cassell & Co. Ltd, Bound issues of The Quiver magazine for Volume XXI, 1886. Half leather. Index + 764pp, illustrated with engravings throughout. Rubs to leathers but a good solid book. Some foxing spots throughout, not too obtrusive. Ref 102539: 20.00 pounds.
