Description:

All issues of the Athenaeum from the yearÂ1858. The Athenaeum was a literary magazine published in London from 1828 to 1921. It had a reputation for publishing the very best writers of the age. Launched in 1828 by James Silk Buckingham, it was sold within a few weeks to Frederick Maurice and John Sterling, who failed to make it profitable. In 1829, Charles Wentworth Dilke became part proprietor and editor; he greatly extended the influence of the magazine. In 1846, he resigned the editorship and assumed that of the Daily News but contributed a series of notable articles to Athenaeum. In 1846, Thomas Kibble Hervey, poet and critic, became editor until his resignation due to ill health in 1853. George Darley was a staff critic in the early years, and Gerald Massey contributed many literary reviews - mainly on poetry - during the period 1858-1868. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper-covered boards. Externally, sound with wear and rubbing. Straining to hinges. ÂInternally, firmly bound. Institutional bookplate to front pastedown of University College of North Wales, dated 1920, and ink stamps to title page also. Index of contents not present for the issues from July onwards. Foxing to first and last couple of pages but otherwise generally bright and clean. Overall: GOODÂ. Bookseller Inventory #
