Cosmopolitan Magazine was founded in 1886, and purchased by William Randolph Hearst in 1905, who merged it with another smaller publication he owned in 1925. It was called 'Hearst's International Combined with Cosmopolitan Magazine' until 1952, the year after Hearst's death. During this period it published the first appearances of many novels and short stories by notable authors, some complete within one magazine, others as serials.
