The Literary and Historical Index to American Magazines, 1800-1850, is an invaluable tool for anyone doing research on the United States in the 19th century. With an index that includes a wide range of subjects and individuals, this book provides access to thousands of references that can currently be obtained from no other source. The researcher looking for references to and reviews of well-known authors such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Lydia Huntley Sigourney, and Edgar Allan Poe will find a plethora of entries to examine. And, for those engaged in the investigation of lesser-known figures, the index includes scores of authors who may not be widely recognized but who, nonetheless, made important contributions to American culture.

Scholars will find the references easy to follow as well as comprehensive. In addition to general references, the index includes the full titles of books, speeches, poems, short stories, and articles written by subjects so that the reader may select the most relevant citations for his or her research.
