Minerals, 1892

1. English, 1892-3 [Periodical].
Minerals. A Monthly Magazine. New York, W.M. Goldwaite, Jan. 1892-Dec. 1893.†

Vols. 1-3, no. 12. Published, vol. 1, no. 1 (Jan. 1892)-vol. 3, no. 12 (Nov./Dec. 1893).

Very scarce. The first number of Minerals was published in January, 1892. It was not a profitable enterprise for the publisher W.M. Goldwaite because the Mineralogist's Monthly was also being published at the time. Therefore, Arthur Chamberlain came to agreement with Mr. Goldwaite to merge in 1893; however, the publication was not profitable, and Minerals ceased publication in December, 1893. This led Arthur Chamberlain to began publication in 1894 of the more famous periodical, The Mineral Collector.
