Description

    The Gentleman's Magazine... London: [various publishers] 1731-1879. Fourth edition of volume I (dated 1732), second volume is a reprint from 1806, all other volumes are first editions. Together, a nearly complete, continuous run in 251 volumes. Octavos (approximately 8.25 x 5 inches). Profusely illustrated with over 2,000 engravings. Nearly uniformly bound in nineteenth-century half brown morocco over marbled boards, spines stamped in gilt. Spines sunned, bindings somewhat worn, some bookplates, notes, toning and minor occasional foxing to texts. Ex-library bookplates (never circulated) and markings in front matter, one board has been re-attached. Known to be lacking two maps, but not completely collated, sold as is. More completely map information available online. An incredible collection, generally near fine with maps and plates still bright and fine.

    Editor Edward Cave (here working under the pseudonym Sylvanus Urban) originally intended for The Gentleman's Magazine to merely reprint material from other such journals, but by 1739, nearly all of the material printed in the Gentleman's Magazine was original. Dr. Samuel Johnson began his literary career as a writer for this journal and contributed much material for several years. Also of interest, this journal featured the first British appearance of the Declaration of Independence, and much, much more. This set includes five index volumes (four volumes cover the years 1731-1818, the final volume is a plate index up to the year 1818). The first fifty-two volumes are single, annual volumes, the rest are double annual volumes.
