IMPORTANT!

This is the ROBERT TEMPLE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ARCHIVE. It contains descriptions and notes relating to almost 18,000 titles in the fields of British and American literature, being the bulk of the stock that has passed through our hands since 1984, with the addition of a few earlier items of especial interest. Books currently in stock are not included, and it is therefore necessary to supplement your search by looking at our Current Catalogues. For the most part full bibliographical descriptions are given, though for some earlier items, catalogued when computing space was more restricted the details given are quite brief. For an account of the conventions adopted, the abbreviations used, and reference sources consulted, please see our information pages.




Please note:
The arrangement here is the same as that adopted in our current catalogues, and as there our larger files are presented in sections for ease of downloading. At the end of each section you are invited to browse the next.

ROBERT TEMPLE BOOKSELLERS BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ARCHIVE, File F: Literary Periodicals. All items first editions and first printings, except as stated.

LITERARY PERIODICAL. REYNOLDS'S MISCELLANY, Of Romance, general literature, science, and art. Edited by George W.M. Reynolds, Author of "The Mysteries of London," "Faust," "Pickwick Abroad," "Master Timothy's Bookcase," "The Parricide," "Robert Macaire," "The Modern Literature Of France," etc. etc. etc. With Numerous Wood Engravings. [Vol.I.] Vol. II. Published for the proprietor, by John Dicks, at the office, No.7, Wellington Street North, Strand, [1846] 1847. 2 Vols. in one, roy.8vo; half title present to each volume, but lacking the Index and Illustrated Title leaves to volume one, which were sold separately, price 1d.; numerous illustrations on text paper; contemporary half-roan, marbled boards. Roan a little rubbed and splitting, and with neat repair to upper joints; marbled sides rubbed; back somewhat bowed; a few leaves remargined, without loss of text, and a little fingering, more or less confined to the early leaves of volume one; otherwise in general nice. An acceptable copy of two of the three volumes of the first series of an important periodical, complete volumes of which, in either series, are now hard to find.

The first four numbers of Volume I. were originally published under the title ‘Reynolds's Magazine'. With the completion of the first volume, they were reprinted with the amended title for binding up into volumes. The present copy includes the corrected version of numbers 1 and 3, but the originals of numbers 2 and 4, this copy having evidently been made up from the 1d. weekly numbers rather than the 6d. monthly parts into which they were later gathered with the addition of Illustrated Wrappers, or being a rebind of the annual volumes, which, at the end of each year, were offered in publisher's cloth. (Binding cases were also on sale, price 1s. 3d.) The first volume, and the first thirty-eight numbers of the second volume (running to Saturday July 24th, 1847), include the complete text of Reynolds's famous story ‘Wagner: the Wehr-Wolf', whilst with number 30 of volume two commences ‘The Days of Hogarth: Or, The Mysteries of Old London' also by Reynolds, both of the stories being here first printed; included besides are numerous stories, poems, etc., as well as a good deal of more general material by other authors. ‘Wagner: the Wehr-Wolf' was first issued separately in penny numbers, commencing Wednesday, November 10th, 1847; ‘The Days of Hogarth' was completed in the ‘Miscellany' in 1848, but not issued separately until 1850.

A fair amount of excellent comic verse also appears in the volume, including some quite long tales very much after the manner of The Ingoldsby Legends; there are extended reviews of Dickens's ‘Christmas Books', Carlyle's ‘Hero Worship', Hunt's ‘Stories from the Italian Poets,' Lever's ‘The O'Donoghue, etc. The 8pp. advertisements at the front of the volume are of some bibliographical interest. Headed "Advertisements received at the office of Messrs. Barker & White, 33, Fleet Street . . . for the following Newspapers published in the United Kingdom [together with one English paper published at Paris] to which office files of the papers are regularly transmitted for the inspection of advertisers", they make clear that the publisher functioned as a major advertising agent for the provincial press, listing nearly 500 titles of newspapers and periodicals, together with brief details of the frequency of their publication, and the areas through which they circulated.
