This lot features three volumes of bound early magazine compilations which house issues from The Art Journal published by George Virtue (London). As was a popular practice during the 1800s and early twentieth century, individual magazine issues were bound together in single hard-cover volumes. The three compilations featured in this lot include all the issues for the years 1859, 1860, 1861 and 1862. These books are large format with elaborate one-quarter leather bindings with marbled paper-covered boards, decorative gilt embossing along their spines, full gilt page edging, and raised bands. Each volume contains an index and is profusely illustrated with high quality engravings printed on heavy stock, single-sided along with an occasional color plate.

The Art Journal, published in London, was the most important Victorian journal on art. It was founded in 1839 by Hodgson & Graves, print publishers, 6 Pall Mall with the title The Art Union Monthly Journal, the first issue, 750 copies, appearing in February of 1839.

Hodgson & Graves hired Samuel Carter Hall as editor, assisted by James Dafforne. Hall soon became principal proprietor, but, unable to turn a profit on his own, the London publisher George Virtue purchased into Hall's Art Union Monthly Journal in 1848, retaining Hall as editor. Virtue renamed the periodical The Art Journal in 1849.

As editor, Hall exposed the profits that custom-houses were earning by importing old masters, and showed how paintings are manufactured in England. Simultaneously, The Art Journal became notable for its honest portrayal of fine arts, but its opposition to fake and misattributed Old Masters, such as a Raphael or a Titian, affected the market in such works adversely.

The early issues of the Journal strongly supported the artists of The Clique and after 1850 it became associated with opposition to the emerging Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB), which Hall considered to be a reactionary movement. Its articles attacked the PRB and its supporter John Ruskin. The most notable essayists included: R. N. Wornum, Thomas Wright, F. W. Fairholt, Edward Lewes Cutts, and Llewellynn Jewitt.

After Hall's retirement in 1880, the journal changed its position, faced with strong competition from the Magazine of Art and the changing public taste influenced by Impressionism. However, it was unable to retain its position and ceased publication in 1912.

The publication has been referred to, at various times, as London Art Journal and Art-journal. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
