The Golden Book Magazine (UK)

Total Issues: 10

Essentially a British reprint edition of the American Golden Book, which was edited by Lanier. Like the US edition, the UK one also had an Editorial Advisory Board consisting of W. Somerset Maugham, Laurence Binyon, J.B. Priestley and A.E. Coppard, though it is unlikely that they did much, if anything, as the contents were almost all lifted entirely from near concurrent US issues. Reprinted works by Victor Hugo, Anthony Chekhov, James Stephens, O. Henry, Zane Grey, Alexander Dumas, Guy de Maupassant and others. It did not seem to be able to tap into the same market carved out by the British Argosy.
