S. S. Stewart’s Banjo, Guitar and Mandolin Journal

I’ve been gathering locations for all issues of S.S. Stewart’s Journal for many years and am now at a point where I’ve exhausted all major sources. I am still looking for missing issues and any suggestions would be most welcome.

The locations include private collections and I would rather not detail those online. If you are interested in contacting the collectors or have information on missing issues below please contact me directly.

An amazing index of American banjo, mandolin and guitar journals, which includes the S. S. Stewart Journal, was written by Jeffrey Noonan: The Guitar in American Banjo, Mandolin, and Guitar Periodicals, 1882-1933.
