The Lakeside Monthly

Total Issues: 57

Not much fiction at start but increased towards end; authors include James Grant Wilson; Francis E. Willard.

Vol. IV. has but five numbers instead of six, the number for Oct. '70 "having been burned in a printing office fire and never reprinted". The two succeeding issues of this volume (Nov. and. Dec.) are therefore numbered 22 and 23 instead of 23 and 24; the paging is also continuous from Sept. to Nov., jumping the October number altogether.

No. 28 (April '71) was never printed, owing to some change of proprietors. The folios are continuous in this volume (V.) from March to May.

Nos. 35 and 36 (Nov. and Dec.'71) were never printed, owing to the burning of Chicago in Oct.'71.

No. 60 (Dec.'73) was combined with Jan. '74 as a Double Holiday Number; hence No. 60 does not exist separately.

The last issue was No. 62 (Feb.'74).
