Likely due to the editorship of Louis Walton Sipley, founder of the American Museum of Photography, several issues include articles on photography as well as the two issues entirely devoted to photography, the centennial of the announcement of photography, and the founding of the American Museum of Photography. As the title suggest, this publication is concerned with all aspects of the arts and sciences, with a special issue dedicated to the printing tercentenary. Sixteen issues comprising the full run of five volumes plus one preliminary issue.
