Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm,  , 206 pp. From the blurb: "This book is a symposium of six documented studies in the periodical activity of 1700 to 1760. Robert W. Achurch discovers the true relation between Steele's London Gazette and his concurrent Tatler; William F. Belcher presents rare information on the sale and distribution of periodicals by way of the British Apollo; Nicholas Joost deals with the Free-Thinker and the problems of authorship in the essay journal; W. O. S. Sutherland analyzes the types of the essay form in Aaron Hill's Prompter; James Hodges discusses the Female Spectator as a courtesy periodical for women; and George P. Winship, Jr., examines the World in its printing and reprinting. These articles on influence, business operation, authorship and editorship, literary form, special content, and bibliography, respectively, illustrate the variety of research in Augustan journals."Contents : Introduction by Richmond P. Bond; Richard Steele, Gazetteer and Bickerstaff by Robert Wailer Achurch; The Sale and Distribution of the 'British Apollo' by William F. Belcher; The Authorship of the 'Free-Thinker' by Nicholas Joost; Essay Forms in the 'Prompter' by W.O.S. Sutherland, Jr.; The 'Female Spectator', a Courtesy Periodical by James Hodges; the Printing History of the 'World' by George P. Winship, Jr. From the introduction: "For the present volume the editor invited the six contributors to prepare essays. On six prominent English journals - the Tatler, British Apollo, Free-Thinker, Prompter, Female Spectator, and World - whose years of publication met each of the first six decades of the eighteenth century. The subjects of these essays illustrate the diversity of studies in the early periodic press - influence, business operation, authorship, literary form, special content, and bibliography. In an attempt to enclose such a variety of topic within a valid unity of time and medium, the editor has served as general counsel to the project and has introduced the volume and the subject with a brief survey of the republic of periodical letters in the Augustan era."
