Beginning in late 1787, Noah Webster, the famous American founding father, published a short-lived monthly periodical entitled ‘The American Magazine’. Webster employed the minds of several authors to write essays promoting education reform, cultural concerns, and national pride with the attempts of establishing a national magazine – something that had not yet happened in America.

 

This extremely rare first edition features the first six volumes of the ‘American Magazine’ – December 1787 through May 1788. Notable essays and articles in these volumes include:

  • Descriptions of major American cities
  • Reports on Native American language, Mingo Indians
  • Extracts from Thomas Jefferson arguments of an ‘unalterable constitution’.
    • Note that this entry is in the volume that was published the same month as the first ratification of the United States Constitution.
  • Narratives of escapees of the Bastille in Paris
  • Description of the life and adventures of John Smith
  • Letters to and from the late Samuel Johnson, LL.D.
  • Review of ‘The Federalist’
  • Article on negro slavery
