What is included with this book?


This monograph is the first of two related titles about The Quarterly Review in Pickering & Chatto?s series The History of the Book. It draws together a collection of scholarlyessays which illustrate the complexity of the early nineteenth-century conservative publishing milieu.The Quarterly Review was launched in March 1809 by a consortium of powerful conservative politiciansand literary men, including George Canning and Walter Scott. In its time, The Quarterly Review was thoughtto closely reflect government policy. However, the essays in this volume reveal that The Quarterly Review was onconsistent in its support of government positions and the journal reflected disagreement over a broad range of religious, economic, and political issues.
