Pencilled notes and some marginal scoring in ‘A Commentary’ and ‘Broadcasting Chronicle’ possibly relate to a review: there is no review slip, but the notes and scoring look to be in the same hand as those in another issue we purchased at the same time, that did have a review slip present. Loosely laid in is a folded leaf of paper bearing a childish poem on one side (signed Alasdair Jeffrey) obviously not in the hand of the scorer, but mentioned as it may possibly give a clue to his identity.

The title-page, which belongs to the second semi-annual volume of 1859, is misleading and has been inserted apparently for the sake of having a title-page, the volume consisting in fact of the issues for October 1859 and January 1860. A ms. note (somewhat cropped) on the upper margin of the Contents to No.225 (January) is expanded on an inset leaf following the front end-paper, beneath the contemporary ownership inscription of one John Campbell Quinn as follows: “‘Diary of a Visit to England in 1775’ by the Revd. Dr. Campbell, page 322 — The materials for the article on Dr. Campbell’s Diary were communicated to me by Lord Macaulay, being his last contribution to these pages made within a short time of his death — Ed. E. Review, 1859-60.” This article was not included amongst the collection of contributions to the Edinburgh published posthumously. All the contributions are anonymous, but among the rest are reviews of the first two volumes of Carlyle’s ‘History of Frederick the Great’, ‘The Virginians’ by Thackeray, ‘Adam Bede’ by George Eliot, Tennyson’s ‘Idyls of the King’, etc., and an obituary for Macaulay.

The organ of the præraphaelite Brotherhood, complete, but in a facsimile edition dating from 1901. It is easily distinguished from the original edition by the wrappers being of poor quality wood-pulp paper rather than a thinner version of the text-paper as with the original, the presence of the advertisement for the Provident Life Office on the inside back wrappers in the second number (it should occur in numbers one and three), the ‘Contents of the Germ, No.1’ being on the inside back wrapper of number three instead of number two, the etchings being on a thin card with a slightly shiny surface rather on plate paper, the folding one being attached at the right hand edge rather than the central fold, and the machine-made text paper being very smooth and having a glossy feel rather than being slightly rough as in the original. Literary contributors include ‘Ellen Alleyn’ [i.e., Christina Rossetti], John Seward, Wm. B. Scott, Calder Campbell, F. Madox Brown, Thomas Woolner, Wm. M. Rossetti, Walter H. Deverell, Dante G. Rossetti, Coventry Patmore, John Orchard, etc. The Preface by W.M. Rossetti was issued both with the facsimiles and separately, and occurs in two variant states, with slightly different versions of the title-page, in one (presumably the first) the word ‘to- Wards’ is hyphenated with a line break; in the other it appears as one word, but with the Gothic ‘w’ erroneously still a capital. (One can only presume that the compositor was unfamiliar with the fount and when re-lineating failed to realise that the ‘W’ was upper case. The Preface is frequently found separately, and with the first state of text, and may have been issued thus as an advertisement, though it is also possible that a few copies may have been made available separately for the benefit of people possessing sets of the original. W.M. Rossetti, who edited the original numbers, here offers a good deal of information relating to the 1850 publication, including statements of print orders and sales, reproductions of contemporary reviews, identification of all the anonymous or pseudonymous contributions, and detailed commentaries on what the issues contained. In this copy p.17, l.26, does not have a raised ‘s’ at the end, which has been the case with copies of the separate issue we have seen.

Scarce. According to CBEL ‘Houshold Words’ ceased publication on 28th May 1859, and was replaced by ‘All the Year Round’, which ceased publication on 30th March 1895. This continuation of the two magazines, under the editorship of Charles Dickens II (the resuscitated ‘Household Words’ beginning, according to the editor’s obituary notice in the issue of August 8th, 1896, in 1881), appears to be unrecorded. Editorship was taken over by the editor’s son, Charles Dickens III. Most of the contributions are anonymous, but named contributors include Esmé Stuart, Fergus Hume, and Christian Lys, all of whom contribute serials, and ‘A.T., an old contributor’, who wrote the obituary.

Scarce. According to CBEL ‘Houshold Words’ ceased publication on 28th May 1859, and was replaced by ‘All the Year Round’, which ceased publication on 30th March 1895. This continuation of the two magazines, under the editorship first of Charles Dickens II (the resuscitated ‘Household Words’ beginning, according to the editor’s obituary notice in the issue of August 8th, 1896, in 1881), and later his son, also Charles Dickens, appears to be unrecorded. Most of the contributions are anonymous, but named contributors include Barbara Dempster, W.B. Tyndall, Alice Gill, Marion F. Theed, Stella M. Düring, E. Bindon, H.F. Abel, and Christian Lys, all of whom contribute serials. The magazine’s backer, Joseph Smith, died early in the year, and financial stringency seems to have set in with a deterioration in the quality of the paper used.
