The Literary Panorama, edited by Charles Taylor, was issued from October 1806 until 1819 when it was merged into The New Monthly Magazine. The Soane copy of volume I only as described above comprises the three issues for October--December 1806 only, with a variant title-page lacking the volume statement, and the verso of the preface leaf lacking the directions to the binder after the errata. The table of contents issued with the number for March 1807 and the supplementary 'Introductory View Of The State Of Europe, In The Public Relations Of Its Nations To Each Other, During The Year 1806.' in xxxii columns, usually found following the preface, are bound at the end of the December issue, followed by the final part of the number for March 1807 from col. 1361 to the end of vol. I.

Copy Notes Soane was sent an advertisement by the printers Cox and Baylis on 9 September for the first number to be issued (q.v.); 'No. 1, 2 & 3' were duly purchased from John Budd for 7s. 6d., on 8 May 1807. (Archives 7/3/154; Jnl 5, p. 86). Presumably Soane bought the first three numbers of the new periodical and had them bound in one volume.

Binding C19th half calf, marbled-paper boards, gilt double-ruled spine, black morocco spine-label.

Reference Number 351
