Description

Since the 1800s, American periodicals devoted to field sports have been reporting developments in techniques, trends, legislation, conservation, and more. They therefore provide a close look into the rich and broad history of hunting, fishing, foxhunting, and related shooting sports in America. Unfortunately, many of these magazines are now out of print and copies are being destroyed to conserve space. In order to preserve the essence of these important resources, American Sporting Periodicals: An Annotated Bibliography lists all of the periodicals on field sports published in America from the early 1800s to those which began publication prior to 1950-a total of over 600 titles. Each entry includes information such as years of publication, frequency of issue, publisher, general content, and first and last date of issuance. This book also includes over 25 images of magazine covers and front pages, diagrams that trace various name changes and mergers, and a detailed timeline. Exhaustively researched and carefully compiled, this first comprehensive listing of American sporting periodicals will serve as a valuable reference tool for collectors and researchers of field sports in America.
