Notes: The Eclectic Magazine was created when Leavitt, Trow and Company purchased the Eclectic Museum from Eliakim Littell in 1844, and gave it the new name. John Holmes Agnew of the Presbyterian clergy was the first editor, followed by Walter A. Bidwell, who edited the magazine until his death in 1881. A vast amount of periodical literature is stored in the file of the Eclectic Magazine . It reprinted articles from the best of the English magazines, spanning the entire reign of Queen Victoria. In addition to printing "the cream of foreign periodical literature," it published some brief extracts from new books and some original articles and fiction in the later years. The finest feature was the engraving -- John Sartain made about 225 portraits, chiefly mezzotints, for the Eclectic.
(cont.) At the end of 1898, the magazine was sold to its weekly rival, the Living Age, of Boston, but rather than being discontinued or absorbed, it was handled as a monthly in conjunction with the Living Age. This union was unsuccessful, however, and in 1905 the two parted company and the Eclectic returned to New York, where it survived less than two years.
