The European Magazine and London Review Vols 77 & 78 1820

£24.99

Product description

Half bound volume containing 12 issues of the magazine.
The European Magazine was a magazine published in London, eighty-nine volumes were published from 1782 until 1826. In direct competition with the Gentleman's Magazine, it was launched as the European Magazine, and London Review in January 1782, promising to offer "the Literature, History, Politics, Arts, Manners, and Amusements of the Age".
Soon after the magazine's launch its founding editor, James Perry, passed proprietorship to the Shakespearean scholar Isaac Reed, his partners John Sewell and Daniel Braithwaite, who guided the magazine during its first two decades. The articles and other contributions in the magazine have largely remained anonymous.
This book has suffered somewhat during its 196 years of existence, the leather spine is extremely scuffed and has separated from the boards both front and back but gilt band and gilt stamped "1820" remain visible on the spine. There are only faint traces of the original marbling on the outer boards and all edges are bumped and rather distressed. The front end papers and the frontispiece and title page are still attached to the front board. The interior, although a little age toned, remarkable for its age, and with pencil marks on some of the page margins, remains legible and firmly attached to the spine. There are several monochrome etchings throughout the book, a little foxed in places but still attractive.
