A continuation of Cassell's Illustrated Family Paper but revamped as a monthly magazine from 1874. Became Strand-like in the 1890s, under Pemberton's editorship, turned into a pulp in 1912. Authors include E.W. Hornung ("Raffles" stories, late 1890s), Rudyard Kipling ("Kim," Jan-1901 - Nov-1901), Rider Haggard ("The Brethren," Dec-1903 - Nov-1904; "Benita," Dec-1905 - May-1906).

An American edition, dated one month later than the English, ran from Jan-1884 to Dec-1907.

Issue Checklist

Cassell's Magazine (Australia)

A single issue of Cassell's Magazine has been located which seems to have identical contents and issue number to the main sequence, but is dated one month later. Although there is nothing on the issues to indicate it's source, this was a common pattern for Australian Reprint Editions at that time, so it is assumed this is an Australian edition of the magazine.
