The Burlington Magazine

Miss Mathers (Comin' Thro' the Rye, 1875, etc) was a very popular novelist in her own right, so the likelihood is that this magazine published fiction of her type (note: a later Burlington Magazine, founded in 1903, is devoted to the fine arts).

Burr McIntosh Monthly

Total Issues: 86

Promoted as a magazine of cheerful wholesome philosophy, it was a calculatedly commercial proposition. The bulk of the publication consisted of pictures (usually beautiful women/actresses) and sentimental mottoes printed on heavy paper and suitable for framing. The pictures were strictly moral, but managed to include a fair amoun of exposed flesh in the way of arms, legs, and carefuly draped breasts.

In its late life it also ran some fiction.
