Half page advertisement for Harper's Magazine, a monthly magazine of literature, politics, culture, finance, and the arts.
Harper's is the second-oldest continuously published monthly magazine in the United States (Scientific American is the oldest). Harper's Magazine was launched as Harper's New Monthly Magazine in June 1850, by the New York City publisher Harper & Brothers, founders of Harper's Bazaar magazine. Harper & Brothers later grew to become HarperCollins Publishing. Early issues reprinted material that had already been published in England, but the magazine soon began publishing the work of American artists and writers and commentary by the likes of Winston Churchill and Woodrow Wilson. Portions of Moby Dick first appeared in print in Harper's Magazine in Oct. 1851 under the title "The Town-Ho's Story".
Volume 59, number 1526, page 226.
