Edwards' Monthly was a Magic Periodical by W.G. Edwards out of Bridgeburg, Canada that ran from February 1909 until June 1910 for a total of 16 issues. It was subsequently merged into Sphinx.

Edwards had a final Vol. 2, No. 4-5 printed, but could not afford the C.O.D. when picking up at the printers. He was able to keep a few, but the box waiting at the printers for payment was eventually put out to the trash.[1] There are two copies of the issue in The Library of Congress as part of the Houdini Collection.[2]

Some of Harlan Tarbell's contributions from the magazine were included in A Tarbell Scrapbook by Richard Kaufman (1993)
