Description

Graham’s success was due in large part to paying contributors fairly and reliably, and demanding subscription fees up front. The decade saw a number of high-quality but less durable competitors to Graham’s, most notably Boston MiscellanyUnion Magazine of Literature and Art, and Columbian Lady’s and Gentleman’s Magazine. These issues contain the first printing of “Descent into the Maelström” by Edgar Allan Poe.
