"Is there no stopping the eternal wheels of the Press for half a century or two, till the nation recover its senses? Must we magazine it and review [it] at this sickening rate for ever? Shall we never again read to be amused? but to judge, to criticise, to talk about it and about it": "Lepus" (Charles Lamb), "Readers Against the Grain," The New Times (January, 1825).
We welcome papers discussing any aspect of magazine publication during a period marked by a highly prolific, competitive, and innovative milieu.
