2005 SUPPLEMENT

AMERICAN PERIODICALS
THE FOLLOWING IS A CATALOG OF NEW ACQUISITIONS OF THE
STEVEN LOMAZOW, M.D. COLLECTION SINCE THE
COMPLETION OF AMERICAN PERIODICALS IN 1996.
(*) DENOTES THAT THE ITEM SUPERSEDES THE PREVIOUS LISTING
OF THE SAME NUMBER. THE REMAINDER ARE EITHER NEW
TITLES OR ADDITIONS TO PREVIOUSLY CATALOGUED TITLES.
THESE ITEMS ARE LISTED ALPHABETICALLY AND NUMBERED WITH
AN "S" PREFIX.
A MISCELLANY OF NEW MATERIAL IS PRESENTED. THERE IS ALSO NEW AND ORIGINAL
RESEARCH , ANDA MORE AGGRESSIVE PURSUIT OF HIGHLIGHTS OF PULPAND LITTLE
MAGAZINES, BOTH BEING DIVERSE AND COMPLEX. ABOUT 800 NEW ITEMS ARE
COMPREHENSIVELY CATALOGUED. INADDITION, THEREARE LISTINGS OF
"HAMBURGER HELPER" FIRST ISSUES AND AN UPDATED INDEX.

It is interesting to note the period from after the Civil War to the turn of the twentieth century, a large number of
magazines, usually of a humorous or scandalous nature, were published. Despite their allegedly large circula-
tions (though many of them clearly exaggerated these numbers) and volume numbers suggesting long publica-
tion runs, many of them are virtually unknown, unlisted in ULS or represented by only a few scattered issues.
Complete runs of even some quite well-known titles such as Wasp, Truth or Once a Week, the direct descendant
of Collier's and McCall's, do not exist. This speaks for the amazingly ephemeral nature and rarity of even the
most popular and collectible titles and adds an even greater thrill to the hunt for American periodicals of this era.

Over the last few years, the incredible proliferation of the Internet has changed the way the antiquarian book
trade is conducted. Auctions such as eBay, book-selling search sites such as Bibliofind, Bookfinder, Alibris
and Advanced Book Exchange, as well as thousands of individual websites now permit the avid collector or
dealer to spend countless hours sitting at the computer pursuing his or her interests. This is now effecting the
type of material seen at book fairs, with many of the highly marketable items, particularly those of lower price,
never getting past the computer screen. The amount of dealers at fairs is perceptably shrinking. Non-internet
book searching is becoming much less evident. Old staples such as Antiquarian Bookman have ceased to exist.
In the new millennium, this trend will undoubtedly persist. Many of the major auction houses are now starting
on-line bidding. Eventually (and sadly) it will not at all be necessary to leave one's chair to buy or sell antiquar-
ian books or periodicals, and the alluring aroma of old dusty bookstores will be no more than a memory!

Welcome to the supplement of American Periodicals! It has been nine years since the first edition and countless
hours of bookfairs, ephemera shows, and internet searching. This edition shows the fruit of all that searching.

Description.
References.

The numbers of new entries are consecutive with a prefix "s" for supplement. Titles cited in the first edition of American
Periodicals continue their original number. Film periodicals are prefixed by the previous system, divided into fan (f), trade
(tr) and in house (h) sub-categories.

The number of listings in Union List of Serials, third edition, 1963, reflects holdings in all major libraries in the U.S and
Canada. It is an index of relative rarity, though any holding, however incomplete is included. It can be inferred that
individual volumes are scarcer and issues in original wrappers even moreso.

Items are referenced to those cited in the first edition, most frequently Mott, Kribbs and Albaugh.

(S97) BUSY BROWNIES
Philadelphia: V. 1 no. 1; January 5, 1897
Pictorial wrappers; 6 3/8 x 9 1/4
ULS: 0. V. 1 no. 1-12.

A rare weekly children's magazine featuring Palmer


Cox's famous Brownies.

According to Cox authority, Wayne Morgan, Busy


Brownies was issued first in a series of 12, which came
in 32, 16 & 12 page variations. The 32 page version
came with ads or merchant stamps. The 16 page version
came with ads, without ads, was offered as a premium
and as a supplement to the Philadelphia Inquirer. A 12
page version was both a premium and a give-away as a
“set of Palmer Cox Primer”.

A much rarer series called The Picturesque World


Series was known to be included in Sunday editions for
newspapers such as the Albany Times Union.

In 1890 Palmer Cox found that the Hubbard Brothers


owed him money for the sales of "The Queer People"
series. This was a rather handsomely produced series of books (small quarto like the Brownie books) of Cox’s
funny animal material. The Hubbards sought to profit from the new popularity of the Brownies with this series.
In an effort to settle with the Hubbards, Cox signed a promissory note allowing the Hubbards to break-up the
material and make up the money he was owed. What resulted was a series of books which went through a series
of publishers and became cheap and ugly until long after the turn of the century.

The Hubbards kept some of the work for purposes of advertising. This material is much more interesting for the
19th century researcher than the above mentioned books (by reprinters such as Hurst, Conkey, Donohue and
others). This is one of many forms this material took. It seems to have had a retail presence while also being
included in newspaper Sunday Supplements. The material is not as rare as eBay sellers suggest. Full sets in
public collections are rare, however.

(S98) BYTE.
Peterbourough, N. H.: V. 1 no. 1-6; September 1975
Pictorial wrappers; 8 1/4 x 10 3/4

The first of the personal computer magazines, edited by Carl T.


Helmers and published by Wayne Green. A scarce and a very
important milestone in the history of twentieth-century magazines.
An offshoot of an Amateur Radio magazine, 73, the initial print run
was 50,000. Helmers published an earlier journal, ECS, which never
attained a circulation of more than 300. The original brown paper
mailing sleeve is also present.
