HISTORY ABOUT HARPERS NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE 

Harpers Magazine and similar publications present great opportunities for collectors to find some steals online. Unlike sister publication Harper's Weekly, Harper's Monthly reveal treasures inside. Its weekly counterpart can become very expensive, especially during the Civil War years, due to the beautiful illustrations on its covers and within. Through the years and until more recent times, Harpers Magazine offered bland covers that changed very little except for the date and the list of contents. Many online sellers don't even bother listing an issue's contents...and that is the true gold where this type of magazine is concerned. From Melville's "Moby Dick" through to Mark Twain, Jack London, William Faulkner, John Steinbeck, J.D. Salinger, and John Cheever, there are literary giants dotting issues of Harper's Monthly throughout its entire history. These stories are for the most part the first available printing and thus in several cases can be quite valuable. Harper's New Monthly Magazine debuted with the June 1850 issue, which included two short stories by Charles Dickens. Harper & Brothers was already the top publishing house in New York and planned to use the new monthly magazine to keep the presses rolling during downtimes. The original plan was to promote the authors whose books they published by printing excerpts and new stories in the magazine. The monthly proved more popular than it's publishers could have possibly imagined moving from a print run of 7,500 copies of the first issue to a circulation of over 50,000 within six months.
