Lot 5379

$300

Book Details: This lot includes the group of antique compilations of The Gentlemen's Magazine: or, Trader's Monthly Intelligencer shown in the corresponding image(s). These volumes contain the first four issues of this periodical, corresponding to the years 1731-1734. Volumes for the years 1733 and 1734 contain supplements with proceedings of the sessions of the British parliament. Texts are in double column. Title pages are illustrated. 1734 volume includes text on solar system, with textual illustration.

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".

Title: Greenwood Cemetery and Other Poems
Author: Joseph L. Chester - Joseph Chester's literary tastes developed at an early age. While in New York he contributed articles to newspapers and magazines of his day with a poetic character. The Knickerbocker for January 1843 contains a poem by him, entitled "Greenwood Cemetery," and signed Julian Cramer, his best known pseudonym. The same year his first volume, "Greenwood Cemetery and Other Poems," was published in New York and Boston.

He also lectured and visited many of the States as an advocate of temperance. Around 1845, Chester moved back to Philadelphia where he obtained a job as a merchant's clerk. In 1847, and for some years subsequently, he was a commissioner of deeds. From 1845 to 1850 he was also the musical editor of Godey's Lady's Book. In 1852, he became one of the editors of the Philadelphia Inquirer and of the Daily Sun; and on the consolidation of the city of Philadelphia, Chester was elected a member of the city council in 1854

During several sessions of Congress in Washington he visited the city as a corresponding editor and as an assistant clerk in the House of Representatives. He was appointed by the Honor James Pollock, who was the governor of Pennsylvania from 1855–8 as one of his aides-de-camp. Chester was given the military rank of colonel, an appellation by which he was afterwards always known.

While in Washington he was employed to sell patent rights in England, and leaving his native country landed at Liverpool on September 6, 1858. Various causes prevented him from succeeding in his undertaking, but he settled in London and made it his residence till his death.

For a time he kept up his connection with the American newspaper press and for about three years furnished a weekly letter from London to the Philadelphia Inquirer. His first work in his new home was "John Rogers, the Compiler of the First Authorized English Bible, the Pioneer of the English Reformation, and its First Martyr," a book of labor and research at last told on his constitution.
