George Peabody (1795-1869) is considered one of the first modern philanthropists, establishing trusts to help the poor, as well as founding the Peabody Institute. He gained much of his fortune from banking, eventually partnering with Junius Spencer Morgan, father of J.P. Morgan. Edited and published by Ralph Griffiths, the Monthly Review published works of criticism on many authors and books, providing bibliographic and historical information on many topics. Of note in this volume are several articles and extracts on topics such as Mr. Adams and his 'cool address on the slave trade;' Dr. Adams on the American Constitutions; life of Captain Cook by Dr. Kippis; account of the Pelew Islands; chemical nomenclature; Scotch distillery laws; slavery; the Government of Quebec; Preston's Guide to Astronomy; the shipwreck of the Antelope; and including the memoirs of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia and a translation of Fourcry's Natural History and Chemistry; and many items on religious, scientific, literary and philosophical subjects.
