The Argosy, generally regarded as the first pulp magazine, and all the other Munsey magazines with which it was connected in its long and glorious history.
It all started in December 1882 with a weekly magazine, in newspaper format, called The Golden Argosy. In December 1888 the name changed to The Argosy, although format and content remained the same until April 1894 when it became a monthly, shifted to pulp format and started the whole pulp revolution. In October 1917 it switched back to being a weekly, and often bore the title The Argosy Weekly on the cover, although the title on the masthead remained The Argosy. In January 1919 it merged with Railroad Man's Magazine and was briefly titled Argosy and Railroad Man's Magazine, and then, in 1920, merged with All-Story Weekly to become Argosy All-Story Weekly.
