First published in 1944, this is a detailed survey of twenty-four distinguished periodicals published in antebellum Georgia. Flanders shows that literary activity was generally confined to middle Georgia and often concentrated on themes of religion and morality, early American life, and European adventures. An extensive bibliography and three appendices give a comprehensive list of magazines published during the time, including dates, places of publication, and names of editors and publishers. More than nine hundred footnotes further elaborate on the analysis of backgrounds, local historical events, and information on contributors.
Bertram Holland Flanders (1892-1979) is also the author of A New Frontier in Education: The Story of the Atlanta Division, University of Georgia.

Editorial Reviews

Has successfully captured much of the richness of human existence . . . [Flanders's] book becomes in part the story of Georgia life, with now a bit of humor and now pathos as one sees the thorny path trod by the early editors and contributors.
