Established by Freeman Hunt, this well-known general commerce magazine was an encyclopedia of commercial subjects, remarkable for its orderly arrangement of masses of material. It promised to discuss every subject interesting or useful to the merchant. The chief subjects were commercial statistics, commercial regulations and treaties, statistics of population, railroads, canals, and roads, mercantile law, and mercantile libraries and associations, the currency, insurance, banking, navigation, U.S. and foreign commerce, and biographies of successful merchants. Francis Wharton, George Tucker, James H. Lanman, J.W. Scott, and George S. Boutwell were among the most valued contributors to the earlier volumes. The troubles of the United States Bank occupied some space in the early volumes and a series on "The Morals of Trade" by J.N. Bellows ran though the years 1842-43. 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.
