American Ladies Magazine

During the early part of the 19th Century there was a magazine called "American Ladies Magazine." The first volume was actually titled "Ladies Magazine." Below is a list of links to Google Books for several volumes. The editor of this project is Sarah Josepha Hale, the author of Mary Had a little Lamb. By clicking the author's name you will be taken to the Wikipedia page about her. In 1837 the magazine was purchased by Godey and merged it with his Godey's Lady's Book.

Ladies Magazine Vol. 1 1828

Ladies Magazine Vol. 2 1829

Ladies Magazine Vol. 3 1830

Ladies Magazine Vol. 4 1831

Ladies Magazine Vol.5 1832

American Ladies Magazine Vol.6 1833. This link is not to Google Books and you can download a copy for your research pleasure.

American Ladies Magazine Vol. 7 1834

One more note, I've listed what is now available on Google books for free. However, other volumes are available for a substantial fee from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. So if you're interested in these volumes I recommend that you download and keep your own personal copy of them.
