Comments: The Columbian Magazine was founded by Mathew Carey, James Trenchard, and 3 others in September, 1786. It was "...the first successful American magazine." Mott, History of American Magazines, 1741-1850, page 100. The magazine was published until 1792. The two copper plates engraved by James Trenchard depict a Patent Drill Plough, that was invented by James Cooke, and the Green Woods of Connecticut near Canaan and Salisbury. The trees in the second plate have been hand colored green as published. Two of the articles in the magazine are continued from previous months and are on the life of William Penn and the history of the American Revolution. Also there is an article against slavery in the French West Indies. There is one preliminary leaf after the title page which includes the current prices of merchandise in Philadelphia and the prices of public securities.
