Established by Geo. P. Putnam, with the assistance of Geo. Wm. Curtis and others. Mr. Putnam's connection with the first series ceased in 1855. In Oct. 1857 this series was merged into "Emerson's United States magazine," which was continued as "Emerson's magazine and Putnam's monthly," and ceased publication with Nov. 1858. (Through June 1858 there were some numbers of "Emerson's magazine" issued with cover-title: "Putnam's magazine," v. 11) Fashioned after Blackwood's, Putnam's Magazine was the lively endeavor of Charles Briggs and George William Curtis. The contributions, although unsigned, came from the best American pens, Herman Melville, Horace Greeley, Parke Goodwin, James Fenimore Cooper, Henry Thoreau, Richard Henry Stoddard, and a great number of others filled the columns with political spice and literary excellence. Always in financial difficulty, the magazine was suspended for a decade.--Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"


Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
