Very scarce. The Mineralogist's Monthly was Arthur Chamberlain's first venture into collector periodicals for American mineral collectors. Published for a number of years with one of Chamberlain's other collector serials, the Exchanger's Monthly which was folded into the Mineralogist's Monthly in November, 1890. In 1893 Chamberlain concluded an agreement with W.M. Goldwaite to merge with another collector's periodical Minerals: A Monthly Magazine, where Goldwaite would be the publisher and Chamberlain the editor [which see next entry]. However, Goldwaite pulled out of the venture in March 1893. This led Chamberlain to found the Mineral Collector [which see].
