Title from caption.
Published first at Brook Farm and then in New York, Harbinger was an organ of American Fourierism, but also gave attention to literary and musical criticism as well as social reform. As a vehicle for the writings of the Brook Farm Phalanx, which it superseded in 1845, and of Albert Brisbanes's Future, it was an interesting, vigorous, and lively periodical and valuable as a source for the study of New England transcendentalism. Contents were varied: included were translations of George Sand's Consuelo and Fourier's Cosmogony, reports from other phalanges, articles on music and on the hard conditions of laborers, and political material opposing slavery and the war with Mexico.
Vols. 3, 5 wanting.
Editors: 1845-46, George Ripley; 1846-47, John S. Dwight and George Ripley; 1848-49, George Ripley, John S. Dwight, and Parke Godwin.
