Wellman's Literary Miscellany

Country: US

Wellman's Literary Miscellany began publishing in 1849. In 1851, it was taken over by a new Detroit publisher, and renamed the Monthly Literary Miscellany. In 1853, the name was again changed to the Western Literary Miscellany, and then the Western Literary Cabinet. That periodical seems to have ceased publication in the mid-1850s, though it may have been succeeded by a Wellman's Literary Emporium. A new Wellman's Miscellany, also based in Michigan, and with a leadoff article by John S. Wellman, ran from 1870 to 1873.

The Wesleyan Juvenile Offering

Country: UK
Total Issues: 276+144+321+24+?=765+

"We intend to describe the different countries where the Missionaries live and preach. We shall give some account of the foolish and wicked customs of the poor Heathen. We shall tell you how some of them have been converted to God, and how much happier they are as Christians, than when they were Heathens. We shall also tell you about the Schools for their children, - and various other things which you may like to know in order to make you love the Missionaries, and encourage you to continue and increase your efforts for them, that they may have the opportunity of preaching to the ignorant and lost." "There are Missionaries in some countries which are not literally Heathen; such as Ireland and France. We shall tell you about these countries, and what the Missionaries are doing there." "We shall give you some interesting information concerning our Missionary Ship, and the countries which it has visited, and concerning the dangers by sea and land to which the Missionaries are sometimes exposed. Occasionally, we shall introduce one or two wood-cuts, and, indeed, shall spare no pains to make you like our little book" (To our Young Readers, 1:1, pp.1-2).

Subtitle varies: "a miscellany of missionary information for young persons" / "a miscellany of missionary information" (1864).

May not have contained any fiction.
