The Port Folio was a new type of American magazine, “Devoted to Useful Science, the Liberal Arts, Legitimate Criticism, and Polite Literature.” A product of the new century, it appeared first as a weekly issue in 1801, changing to a monthly magazine in 1809 until its demise at the end of 1827. The Port Folio contained numerous engraved illustrations, from current events to historical portraits.
