Swank

There appear to be three distinct series of the magazine. The first was subtitled "For the Man Who Knows" and looks somewhat like an Esquire clone. It ran from August 1941 to March 1942, and possibly only lasted for 7 issues. Later in the mid 1940s it reappeared as an all-reprint digest subtitled "The Modern Digest for Men", with pieces by well-known figures like Ambrose Bierce, Humphrey Bogart, Oscar Levant, Earl Wilson.

Finally, in the mid 1950s, it reappeared as a men's magazine and published stories by Robert Bloch, Avram Davidson, Barry Malzberg, Norman Spinrad, Henry Kuttner and a whole bunch of others.

The volume numbering was restarted for each of the series.
