Editorial Reviews

Review

I bought this book because it has nine hundred covers, printed on glossy paper, three to a page (mostly two and a half inches deep) and best of all, in color. The listing is alphabetical with the magazine title, publisher and prices relating to the life of the title. This arrangement makes for some odd visual surprises Jungle Stories (1954) is facing Kimball's Dairy Farmer (1917) or Everbody's Poultry Magazine (1916) facing Exciting Detective (1940)...-Robin Benson

Just received this book on info and values of old magazines. It is exactly what I was looking for. Literally thousands of magazines featured here. What was helpful that I didn't expect was the location of each publication, beginning to end of the lifetime of the magazine, along with values. It also tells you if the publication changed names which I discover MANY old magazines did. It has all of the recognizable magazines like Sports Illustrated and national news magazines to the most obscure magazines, some of which lasted on a few publications.
If you have any interest in old magazines, get this resource. Only a person who is very serious about collecting old magazines would know 10% of this info For the rest of us, this is a perfect resource.

Nothing against this publication, but it was not what I was looking for. I thought it would give the value of individual issues of specific magazines which it did for what I would consider antique magazines. However, there was very little information provided on old issues of contemporary magazines.
