Godey's Magazine, begun in 1830 by Louis A. Godey, was by far the most popular women's periodical of its day. Achieving a circulation of 150,000 before the war, it was anxiously awaited by its many fans, who read and re-read the sentimental stories and poems, studied and copied the fashions, and even cut out and framed the engravings. The key to its success was the section of fashion plates, which were hand-colored by more than 100 women employed by Godey. Sentiment was abundant, and politics were excluded, but much on the education of women appeared. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900
