Bibliographic Sources for Entries

Following is a list of library catalogs, data bases, and bibliographic essays that provided names of magazines and information on their publication.

In some cases, information on entries was gleaned from contemporary periodicals that have variously advertised, corresponded with, or criticized sister publications from the earliest records here. When a periodical listed as a primary source is also a source for information on another entry, it is noted as a reference for that entry; more complete information can be found under its primary entry in the list.
