The Cornhill Booklet

Total Issues: 27

"One of the best of the turn-of-the-century chapbooks, distinguished both for its content and its design. Literary highlights include first American printings of Rudyard Kipling poems, Robert Louis Stevenson letters, and Oscar Wilde's brilliant "The Ballad of Reading Gaol". Of equal note are special issues devoted to the works of Eugene Field (one, an attractive reprint of the Tribune Primer and, the other, a collection of short stories), Nathaniel Hawthorne (the first reprints of articles that appeared in the American Magazine of Useful and Entertaining Knowledge) and Mark Twain ("English as She is Instructed," Twain's take on a Devil's Dictionary).

Coronet

Total Issues: 299

"The pocket magazine ranking second in circulation to Reader's Digest... its first issue, with its five-color cover, carried drawings, etchings, and color reproductions of the work of Rembrandt and Raphael in addition to fiction, articles, and photographs" (Theodore Peterson, Magazines in the Twentieth Century). This magazine, which sounds like an American equivalent of the British publication Lilliput, later toned down its "artiness" but remained popular for a couple of decades.

Went through a muck-raking period but switched heavily to fiction in 1912. Eventually was transformed into a sexy upmarket women's magazine under the editorship of Helen Gurley Brown (from 1965).

Initially called The Cosmopolitan, although the definite article seems to have been dropped by 1903 or therabouts. Merged with Hearst's International in Mar- 1925 and technically called Hearst's International combined with Cosmopolitan until Mar-1952, although generally known as Cosmopolitan throughout. Re- emerged under single name in April 1952.
