Notes / Commentary:

LeBlanc never saw one. It was advertised in the pages of the New York Weekly during 1873-74. He believed that it contained articles and news items in depth, similar to the earlier Beadle's Monthly.

Price information and publisher's blurb come from advertisement in the January 1, 1876 issue of The American Bookseller. This may suggest that the publication lasted longer than 12 issues or that the dates listed here are not entirely accurate.
