The magazine was founded in 1911 by Frank Weitenkampf, an American librarian, art historian, and print collector. It was intended to serve as a resource for print collectors, curators, and scholars, as well as a way to promote and elevate the art of printmaking.

Over the years, The Print Collector's Quarterly published articles by some of the most renowned print scholars and collectors of the time, including Campbell Dodgson, A.M. Hind, and H.P. Bowie. The magazine also featured high-quality reproductions of prints, often in full color, providing readers with a detailed look at the techniques and materials used in the printing process.

While The Print Collector's Quarterly was primarily focused on historical printmaking, the magazine also covered contemporary printmaking trends and artists. The inclusion of articles on print portfolios and print editions made the magazine particularly useful for art dealers and collectors.

After a run of over 80 years, The Print Collector's Quarterly ceased publication in 1993. However, the magazine remains an important resource for scholars and collectors of print art, providing a comprehensive look at the history and evolution of printmaking as an art form.{{Categories}}
