Godey's Magazine and Lady's Book were a popular 19th Century women’s magazine published by Louis A. Godey from 1830–1878. In the 1860s Godey's considered itself the "queen of monthlies".
Each issue contained poetry, articles, and engravings created by prominent writers and other artists of the time. Including Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Washington Irving, James K. Paulding, William Gilmore Simms and Nathaniel Parker Willis.
The magazine was expensive; subscribers paid $3 per year ( The Saturday Evening Post was only $2 per year) and is best known for the hand-tinted fashion plate that appeared at the start of each issue, which provide a record of the progression of women's dress.
Each issue cost $105,200 to produce with the coloring of the fashion-plates costing $8,000. Almost every issue also included an illustration and pattern with measurements for a garment to be sewn at home.
