The North American Review has a rich and varied history, having gone through numerous changes and, phoenix-like, died and risen from its own ashes. It has been a bimonthly, a quarterly, a bimonthly again, a monthly, a fortnightly, and finally a quarterly. Its circulation has varied from a few hundred to a high of 76,000 in 1891 to today's 4,000. In its earlier years especially, it had an influence out of proportion with its relatively modest circulation figures.
