Blackwood's Magazine was a British magazine and miscellany printed between 1817 and 1980. It was originally called the Edinburgh Monthly Magazine.

Blackwood's was originally conceived as a rival to the Whig-supporting Edinburgh Review. The magazine published the works of radicals of British romanticism such as Shelley and Coleridge.

Stamp to front pastedown and title page of most volumes indicate these volumes are ex-library from Cistercian College, Roscrea. Cistercian College is a private boarding school in Ireland. It is a Roman Catholic seven day boarding school for boys.

What Our Customers Say...

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read and satisfy my request, and for your help with shipping the book to Bulgaria even before the expected arrival time in great condition. It really helped bring out the waterworks to a true Pratchett fan and make this a special celebration that she will remember.
