The Lady's Magazine [1901]

Total Issues: 42+4+5+393=444

In its first incarnation, published the "Chronicles of Addington Peace" series of crime stories by B. Fletcher Robinson (Aug-1904 - Jan-1905). Came of age when renamed The Novel Magazine, becoming Pearson's rival to Newnes's Grand Magazine.

Stories often superficial and slight, with a bias towards light romance but also included many mystery and ghost stories and, from Jan-1912 featured a regular "uncanny tale" slot (later the basis for two anthologies); also published "The White Ghost of Disaster" by Mayn Clew Garrett (Jun-1912 -- from the US May-1912 Popular Magazine) which presaged the Titanic. Authors include Sax Rohmer, Talbot Mundy, A.M. Burrage, Elinor Mordaunt and many US authors (Achmed Abdullah, Ray Cummings, Murray Leinster).

Dropped most weird fiction by 1923 and shifted more to romance and mystery -- published many stories by Agatha Christie and Richmal Crompton.

Note that the cover title was Lady's Home Magazine of Fiction from Nov-1904 to Jan-1905, and was The Home Magazine of Fiction for Feb-1905 alone.

The Lakeside Monthly

Total Issues: 57

Not much fiction at start but increased towards end; authors include James Grant Wilson; Francis E. Willard.

Vol. IV. has but five numbers instead of six, the number for Oct. '70 "having been burned in a printing office fire and never reprinted". The two succeeding issues of this volume (Nov. and. Dec.) are therefore numbered 22 and 23 instead of 23 and 24; the paging is also continuous from Sept. to Nov., jumping the October number altogether.

No. 28 (April '71) was never printed, owing to some change of proprietors. The folios are continuous in this volume (V.) from March to May.

Nos. 35 and 36 (Nov. and Dec.'71) were never printed, owing to the burning of Chicago in Oct.'71.

No. 60 (Dec.'73) was combined with Jan. '74 as a Double Holiday Number; hence No. 60 does not exist separately.

The last issue was No. 62 (Feb.'74).

Land & Water

Total Issues: 316

Land & Water has a complicated history: it first appeared on 27-Jun-1866 as a gentleman's country-life magazine and was merged with County Gentleman on 3-Jun-1905; it then started a separate life on 2-Jan-1915 even though the original was still shown as part of County Gentleman; it was then made official and started under a new publisher on 6-Jan-1916. Then, in 1920, it merged with The Field.

The new incarnation usually published one or two stories and on occasion a serial. Authors include Algernon Blackwood, Ernest Bramah, Alice Herbert, Katherine Rickford, Lord Dunsany, John Metcalfe ("The Bad Lands," 1920). Serials include "Greenmantle" John Buchan (1916), "The People of the Ruins" Shanks (1919-20).
