The New-England Magazine was a monthly literary magazine published in Boston, Massachusetts, from 1831 to 1835.

Overview[edit]

The magazine was published by Joseph T. Buckingham and his son Edwin. The first edition was published in July 1831, and it published a total of 48 editions. After its final issue, in December 1835, the magazine merged with the New York-based American Monthly Magazine.

The magazine has been described as "one of antebellum America's few worthwhile literary journals".[1] Its contributors included Nathaniel Langdon Frothingham, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edward Everett, and Samuel Gridley Howe.

The magazine has no connection to The New England Magazine, a Boston publication published from 1884 to 1917.
