This study of the literary magazines published in Kentucky between 1800 and 1900 consists of material derived from the following sources: The Louisville Public Library; ti1e State and Kentucky State Historical Society libraries, Frankfort; the Lexington Public Library, Transylvania, and University of Kentucky libraries, Lexington; the public libraries of Paris, Covington, Newport, Cincinnati, and Nashville; the Western Kentucky State Teachers College library, Bowling Green; and also the newspaper files of the Nashville Banner, the Lexington Herald, the Paris Kentuckian-Citizen, and the Courier-Journal.

I wish to make it clear that this study is of literary magazines only. Other phases might have entered into the study, such as politics and religion, but this study concerns the magazines for their literary qualities alone.
