Ainslee's Magazine

Total Issues: 9+6+346=361

The magazine began in March 1897 as The Yellow Kid, a humor semi-weekly, coat-tailing on the popularity of the "Yellow Kid" newspaper cartoons. In July 1897 it became a monthly as The Yellow Book. As the Yellow Kid boom faded, it changed format and was renamed Ainslee's in February 1898.

At first it was a general-interest magazine, with articles and stories, but in late 1902 it changed to an all-fiction format. Authors include Stanley J. Weyman, Bret Harte, Anthony Hope, Stephen Crane, Jack London, some of the earliest stories by O. Henry, Albert Payson Terhune, I.A.R. Wylie, E. Phillips Oppenheim.

Ainslee's lasted until December 1926, after which it was merged into Far West Illustrated.
