Half-sheet, folded, conjugate leaf blank. The magazine, each issue of which was to consist of 'Seven Sheets of Letter-press, printed in Octavo, on a fine wove extra royal Paper, large Page with double Columns' was to be published (and edited?) by the engraver Charles Taylor (1756--1823), and printed by Cox, Son and Baylis, Great Queen Street, London. The first series ran from October 1806 to September 1814, and a 'new series' from October 1814 to July 1819, after which the magazine was incorporated into the New Monthly Review.
