The Steven Lomazow Collection of American Periodicals has been curated for the purpose of demonstrating the role of magazines as a reflection of all aspects American popular culture from pre-revolutionary times to the present day.

Doctor Lomazow maintains two blogs and as well as for his collection.


Now after over forty years of collecting, it is now time to find an appropriate home for my collection; it’s considered to be the finest in private hands with hundreds of thousands of exquisitely rare and historically important items.

The collection contains virtually every major magazine highlight ever published from the eighteenth century to the present and covers nearly every topic — literature, politics, technology (TV, Radio, Movies, Aviation etc). It also includes by far the largest collection of first issue pulp magazines (over 850) in existence. Any institution or individual acquiring it will immediately become one of the leading repositories of American popular culture.

“In Lomazow” is a professional reference to an annotated catalog I wrote for my collection, American Periodicals: A Collector’s Manual and Reference Guide. This website is an up-to-the-minute catalog of this guide.

All of the posts from my blog,, are using material from the Lomazow Collection and the scope can be easily surmised by a review there as well as at this site. I am also on Twitter sharing my collection @DoctorLomazow, #LomazowCollection. Please join me.

The Lomazow Collection covers hundreds of feet of shelves occupied by bound volumes and individual issues. There are 80,000+ items.

Serious inquiries only, we are talking a price (on request) well into multiple seven figures — a combination sale/donation considered.

This is the real deal; it is an unreproducible repository of major importance.
