Thumbnail for The ArgosyArgosy, later titled The Argosy and Argosy All-Story Weekly, was an American pulp magazine from 1882 through 1978, published by Frank Munsey. It is the first American pulp magazine. The magazine began as a children's weekly story-paper entitled The Golden Argosy.

In late September 1882, Frank Munsey had moved to New York City to start Argosy, having arranged a partnership with a friend and with a stockbroker from. Munsey put most of his money, around $500, into purchasing stories for the magazine. Once in New York, the stockbroker backed out, and Munsey released his New York friend from involvement, as they were hopelessly underfunded. He then pitched the magazine to a publisher, and convinced him to publish the magazine and hire Munsey as editor.

The first issue published December 2, 1882, was eight pages and cost five cents. Munsey found targeting children a mistake, as they did not stay subscribed for any length of time, since they grew out of reading the magazine. Additionally, children did not have much money to spend, limiting the number of advertisers.

In December 1888 the title was changed to The Argosy. Publication to monthly in April 1894, at which time the magazine began its shift towards pulp fiction. It eventually published its first all-fiction issue in 1896. The all-fiction Argosy launched a new genre of magazines, and is considered the pioneer among pulp magazines. (Source: wikipedia)

It appears that nothing before 1951 was renewed as well as not all issues after were renewed. However, many individuals stories were renewed. We have had to remove all issues after 1922 until stories can be searched.
