The Edinburgh Review has been the title of three distinct intellectual and cultural magazines. The best known, longest-lasting and most influential of the three was the second, which was published regularly from 1802 to 1929.

The second Edinburgh Review, founded in 1802, became one of the most influential British magazines of the 19th century.

Started on 10 October 1802 by Francis Jeffrey, Sydney Smith and Henry Brougham, it was published by Archibald Constable in quarterly issues until 1929. It began as a literary and political review. Under its first permanent editor, Francis Jeffrey (the first issue was edited by Sydney Smith), it was a strong supporter of the Whig party and liberal politics, and regularly called for political reform. Its main rival was the Quarterly Review which supported the Tories. The magazine was also noted for its attacks on the Lake Poets, particularly William Wordsworth.

CONDITION

Internally, firmly bound (though with one leaf of volume L detached). Pages are bright, though with some foxing, and marks to the endpapers. Slight loss to the edge of one page. Overall: VERY GOOD
