The National Observer

Country: UK

Although probably more famed for its poetry (including Kipling's "Barrack-Room Ballads" and some of W.B. Yeats's best-known early lyrics) than for its fiction, this general literary review also published short stories by Robert Louis Stevenson, Kenneth Grahame, Yeats and others. Its ebullient, one-legged editor, W.E. Henley, was reputed to be the model for Long John Silver; he also discovered H.G. Wells.

The National Sunday Magazine

Country: US

One of the four Sunday Magazine Supplements published during the period 1902 to 1920 (roughly) The National Sunday Magazine is one of the most confusing as it seems to have had a number of different names. In 1911 and 1912, for instance, it was known as The Family Magazine Section, The Monthly Magazine Section, and even The Semi-Monthly Magazine Section, and in 1915 it seems to have been called United Sunday Magazine Newspaper Magazines.

The National Sunday Magazine appeared in at least The Boston Sunday Globe, The Chicago Herald, The Chicago Sunday Tribune, The Cincinnati Enquirer, The New York World, The Pittsburgh Dispatch, The San Francisco Call, and The San Francisco Chronicle.

Although the covers of the magazines were typically simply called The Sunday Magazine of the xxxx for each newspaper concerned, this syndicate is fairly easy to recognize because they bear a copyright notice from the Abbott & Briggs Co.
