Gunter's Magazine was started in Feb 1905 by the Home Publishing Co., which
was apparently owned by Archibald Clavering Gunter. Gunter died in 1907 and the
company passed through the hands of a Receiver, ending up at Street and Smith
with the May 1908 issue. With the October 1910 issue the publisher changed to
The La Salle Publishing Co. in Chicago and the title was changed to The New
Magazine. That issue featured the old Gunter's logo as a shadow behind the
new name, on the cover and contents page only; every place else in the issue
only the new title was used.
This magazine's run effectively ended with that issue, volume 12 number 3,
because the very next issue restarted the numbering at volume 1 number 1, and
dropped all mention of Gunter's. The title was modified to New Story
Magazine with the August 1911 issue. It passed back to Street & Smith again
with the February 1912 issue.
With the December 1915 issue the title was changed again, to All Around
Magazine. For some reason the numbering was modified with the July 1916 issue,
which was volume 2 number 3 instead of the volume 12 number 3 it should have
been. It expired for good with the March 1917, issue, volume 3 number 5.
As The New (Story) Magazine published H. Rider Haggard, Edgar Rice
Burroughs, Edgar Wallace, James Francis Dwyer; as All Around Magazine
published "The Treasure of Atlantis" J. Allan Dunn (Dec-1916) and
serialized "The Bowl of Baal" R.A. Bennet (Nov-1916 - Feb-1917).
