Lot 2236

$35

Book Details: This lot includes the group of antique compilations of The Gentleman's Magazine: and Historical Chronicle shown in the corresponding image(s). These volumes contain the issues of this periodical corresponding to the year 1807. Texts are in double column. Title pages are illustrated. These volumes contain numerous engraved plates, including illustrations of churches at Hastings, "the Sufferings of the Duchess of Suffolk," and of the Church of the Holy Trinity in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The Gentleman's Magazine was founded in London, England, by Edward Cave in January 1731. It ran uninterrupted for almost 200 years, until 1922. It was the first to use the term "magazine" (from the French magazine, meaning "storehouse") for a periodical. Samuel Johnson's first regular employment as a writer was with The Gentleman's Magazine.

Cave's innovation was to create a monthly digest of news and commentary on any topic the educated public might be interested in, from commodity prices to Latin poetry. It carried original content from a stable of regular contributors, as well as extensive quotes and extracts from other periodicals and books. Cave, who edited The Gentleman's Magazine under the pen name "Sylvanus Urban", was the first to use the term "magazine" (meaning "storehouse") for a periodical. Contributions to the magazine frequently took the form of letters, addressed to "Mr. Urban". The iconic illustration of St John's Gate on the front of each issue (occasionally updated over the years) depicted Cave's home, in effect, the magazine's "office".
