Polyanthos (magazine) Wikipedia
The Polyanthos (December 1805 – September 1814) was a monthly literary magazine published in Boston, Massachusetts, by Joseph Tinker Buckingham. Contributors of essays, biographical articles and other literature included Wilkes Allen, Rev. John Eliot (of New North Church), John Lathrop, Jr., Samuel Louder, John Lovering, John Randall, Solomon Stoddard, Royall Tyler, Samuel A. Wells, and Rufus Wyman. Buckingham also wrote theatre reviews in each issue. Most issues featured an engraving, often a portrait by Samuel Harris (ca.1784-1810) or a song. The magazine ceased in 1814 "for the ungrateful or undiscerning public, — notwithstanding the expressed flattery of their taste and confidence in their liberality, — suffered it to wither and die."
