In the months ahead we'll continue to post sections of A Publisher's History of American Magazines, a comprehensive overview of the business of magazine publishing as it evolved in this country.
This is a manuscript still very much in development, and parts may change from time to time. Later chapters may be started before earlier chapters are complete. That's to hold your interest while ours wanders.
Our homegrown method of citation is kludgy and cockeyed. We ask your indulgence.
Questions and concerns can be addressed to the author. We welcome all inquiries and comments... corrections most of all.
