    Argosy:    (about)
    Started as a boys’ magazine; in 1888 widened its areas of interest but was still basically juvenile. In Oct-1896 became an all-fiction magazine. Remained one of the leading fiction pulps until 1943 when it changed to a men’s adventure magazine. Circulation peaked at 500,000 in 1907.

    Argosy carried the “combined with All-American Fiction Magazine” on its front cover in decreasing sizes of type from September 24, 1938 through December 17, 1938--a total of 11 issues.

    The final issue of the main sequence of the magazine is “November- December 1978”. It is Vol. 338, No. 3, a misnumbering since the preceding two issues (September and October) bore the volume number of 388. This was followed by at least four issues in 1979 from a different publisher for which Argosy was subtitled “for a Greater America” and was focussed on articles attacking the government.

    The 1990 incarnation was a semi-pro version, with a good helping of SF. The origin of the numbering is not known, but does not derive from the earlier incarnations.
