volume publication that came out in 1872-1874, originated in the magazine as a series of pictures and sketches under that title; among the featured artists were Harry Fenn, A. R. Wand, and Winslow Homer. The year 1876 saw the birth of a new Appleton magazine entitled the Art Journal, containing the kinds of art that had been featured in Appleton's Journal. Upon deciding to end Appleton's in 1881, the publishers began to print the literary articles in their new Appleton's Literary Bulletin.

Appleton's Journal is worth the look of students of late nineteenth-century American history and literature. It would also most likely be of interest to persons studying women's history or doing research on late nineteenth-century New Yorkers.
