"With perhaps more bravado than common sense, the authors attempt herewith to list the English-language periodicals from 1791 through 1983 in the major collections existing today" - Introduction.

It contains over 7,500 entries of Magic Periodicals in the English language during the last two hundred years including title, editor, place of publication, publisher, frequency, size as well as dates of first and last issues.

It superseded their earlier book, A Short Title Check List of Conjuring Periodicals in English (1976).

In 2000, Father Stephen A. Fernandes published an updated called Magic Magazines of the Second Millennium.

The numbering system used, now known as "Alfredson/Daily" or "Daily/Fernandes" numbers, are used by many periodicals collectors when referring to specific books.[1][2]
