Pearson's Magazine (US)

Country: US
Total Issues: 312

US edition of the British magazine. Initially a straight like-for-like printing it later diverged quite considerably running original US material as well as reprinting from other UK magazines.

The magazine first appeared in March 1899 but, because it was really just a US printing of the UK edition it continued the same volume and issue numbering, which then was Volume 7, No. 39. There's a sudden change in Jan 1903 when the magazine numbering becomes Vol. 9 No. 1. It had now converted to a volume numbering consistent with the first US issue.
