The Popular Magazine - Early 20th Century Pulp Story Magazine
The Popular Magazine was one of a number of pulp magazines
that published what could be called a literary magazine for the
common man. It was published twice a month by Street & Smith
and contained full length and serialized novels and short stories
in several genres. It describes itself as a magazine for men
and women who like to read about men. It has the love story without
the mush, the dramatic story without the staginess, the business,
mystery, and adventure story in their best and highest form.
The newsstand price was 15 cents. We are again impressed by the
vocabulary and the quality of the stories that appeared in these
mass market publications. We offer a small selection of magazines
from 1914 to 1928. The covers are rough with small tears, paper
missing from the spine and rough edges. Still a very interesting
series for anyone interested in the social history of the United
States in the early part of the 20th century. $25.00 each
