For all it is very useful, the Internet Archive is in a bit untidy and could do with some judicious editing. The volumes digitized are sometimes incoorrectly catalogued. It is necessary to look at each file separately in order to ascertain which volumes have been digitized. It would seem that most, if not all the volumes of this journal from 1857-1903 have been done.

A description of The Craftsmen provided by the Digital Library for the Decorative Arts and Material Culture:
In 1901, Gustav Stickley, a premier proponent of the Arts and Crafts movement in North America, along with United Crafts of Eastwood N.Y. published the first issue of The Craftsman. The monthly journal was dedicated to the products, ideals and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts Movement. The Craftsman espoused the ideal of simple, functional design and the "necessity of producing good art as a means to improve public morals and further public happiness" (Foreword from v.2, no.3, 1902). Topics include furniture making, domestic architecture, interior design, landscape design, decorative arts, textiles, industry and social commentary. There are also numerous articles by and about major artisans and proponents of the Arts and Crafts Movement, such as William Morris, John Ruskin, Charles Binns, Irene Sargent, Frederick Law Olmsted and Harvey Ellis. Full of illustrations and photographs, The Craftsman provides a multifaceted and detailed look into the movement and its beginnings in North America. The journal ceased publication in 1916.
Presented here is a full-text digital facsimile of The Craftsman (1901-1916), made from the holdings of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Steenbock Library and Kohler Art Library. The libraries' issues are not archivally intact; covers and concluding sections of advertising pages are missing in some cases. However, article content in numbered page sequences is complete. The full text is keyword searchable within the limits of optical character recognition software. The contents for each issue can also be browsed; and thumbnail images of pages in sequence can be displayed using "gallery view." Indexing of The Craftsman in commercial sources is available via "Readers' Guide Retrospective" online by the H. W. Wilson Co., and the print volume: "The New Craftsman Index," by Marilyn Fish (Lambertville, NJ: Arts and Crafts Quarterly Press, 1997).

Description provided by the Digital Library for the Decorative Arts and Material Culture at the University of Wisconsin :
The New Path (May, 1863-December, 1865) was a short-lived but significant journal published in New York by the Society for the Advancement of Truth in Art.

The journal is of interest for its content and provides an example of one of the earlier art journals published in the United States. The full text is searchable here, relying on optical character recognition software to analyze the scanned pages. This journal is also among those indexed by the UW-Madison licensed resource, Index to Nineteenth-Century American Art Periodicals. The original text volume is available at the UW-Madison, Kohler Art Library, AP N532 P297.
