The Quarterly Review. ... [No. III, August 1809; no. V, February 1810; no. VIII, November 1810; no. XIII, March 1812; no. LIV, July 1822; no. LXVII, June 1826]

Edited by William Gifford from 1809 to 1824 and J.T. Coleridge from 1824 to 1826, the Quarterly Review, one of the 19th century's most influential journals, was established in spring 1809 by the eminent London publisher John Murray. The founders of this hugely influential journal included George Canning (later a Conservative Prime Minister), Robert Southey (later Poet Laureate) and the novelist Walter (later Sir Walter) Scott. The Soane copy, bound in three volumes, is a fragmentary run of six numbers only issued between 1809 and 1826 (see copy notes), and lacks the volume title-pages issued every two numbers.

A bill survives for one issue (presumably the one for July 1822) purchased from T. & W. Boone on 15 October 1822 for the price of 5s. (Priv. Corr. XVI.E.4.7). A marker is inserted in no. LXVII at 'Article IX' on 'Architectural improvements in London'.
