This influential literary magazine and book review was founded by publishers Dodd, Mead and Company in 1895. Purchased by the George H. Doran Company in 1918, it was edited by two of the bookshop door's signers under Doran's ownership: Robert Cortes Holliday from 1918 to 1920 and John Farrar from 1921 to 1927. When Doran merged with Doubleday in 1927, it sold off the Bookman to Seward B. Collins and Burton Rascoe. During the years that the bookshop operated, the magazine featured articles, poems, and fiction by and about many of those who signed the bookshop door. Its advertisements, bestseller lists, and other features make it an excellent resource for understanding trends in commercially successful literary writing of the time.
