About this Item

Small 8vo, pp. [289-336. Self wraps, very good. Contains a section on American affairs: General Carlson's letter to Lord George Germain, on driving the Provincials out of Canada, etc.Illustrated with a pastoral scene by Gessener. The Gentleman's Magazine, founded by Edward Cave in 1731 under his famous pseudonym "Sylvanus Urban," was the most influential periodical of its age and inaugurated one of modern publishing's most characteristic formats. Its impact extended to America where, in 1741, Benjamin Franklin's General Magazine was chiefly "patterned after London's ten-year-old Gentleman's Magazine" (Isaacson, 118). In time, Gentleman's Magazine reflected Britain's increasing concerns over the American Revolution-. Bookseller Inventory # 56870
