Title index to Robert Merry’s Museum

To author index

Robert Merry’s Museum featured fiction, non-fiction, and works that were a combination of the two. It also printed poetry and music, as well as excerpts from works for adults, such as Herman Melville’s Typee. A major feature of the magazine was “Merry’s Chat with His Friends”, where letters from subscribers were printed; this column was the single most popular section of the magazine and made the readers feel like a large familiy, rather than just a collection of subscribers.

Alphabetized by title of piece. Author listed in parentheses as credited; for real name of pseudonymous authors, see “By author”. Numbers include year.volume number.page numbers, thus 1855.2.123 = 1855, volume 2, page 123. The Museum included two volumes per year: volume 1 included January-June; volume 2 included July-December.
