The Token contained some of the earliest work of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry W. Longfellow. Goodrich published Peter Parley’s Magazine (1832–44) and then merged it into his Merry’s Museum, founded in 1841 and for a time edited by Louisa May Alcott.  The main purpose of this book is to exhibit a series of well-authenticated anecdotes, which illustrate the character and habits of the more prominent species of the animal kingdom.
