Fisher's National Magazine and Industrial Record, Vol. 3, No. 3, August 1846

New York: Fisher's, 1846.

Softcover. Good+. Approx. 6 x 9-1/4" in sewn printed wraps, pp. [ii], 1, 206-300; age-toned with minor creasing, some loss to the spine, but a good sound copy. This short-lived monthly (it began in June of 1845 and ended in November of 1846) was put forth, according to Sabin, "as a rival to Hunt's merchant's magazine." There is some evidence, however, that Hunt himself was an early subscriber. At any rate, the magazine provides a fascinating insight into the economic and trading aspects of the United States as it began to situate itself in world commerce. This issue includes articles on Kentucky cotton bagging and Viriginia coal mines; statistical reports on goods manufactued in New York and Connecticut, mining reports, and more.
