The English Novel in the Magazines. 1740-1815.
"With a catalogue of 1375 magazine novels and novelettes." Interspersed with illustrations of first pages, etc. The first 350+ pages is a highly readable history of magazines and prose fiction throughout the period, with additional pages devoted to end notes and a very useful glossary. The catalogue section is in chronological order, followed by an alphabetical index for magazines, authors, titles, and a register of periodicals that included long prose fiction. With all the focus on publishing, we often forget how many people consumed their fiction via periodicals during this period. In very good condition, but X-Library with pocket sleeve and stamps. Northwestern University Press/Evanston and Oxford University Press London. 1962. USED. $10
