The Granta [1889]

A Cambridge students' little magazine, and long a training ground for humorists who went on to greater things (among them F. Anstey, E. F. Benson, Barry Pain, A. A. Milne), it faded away in the 1960s; revived in very different format as Granta, 1979.

Great Detective

Total Issues: 12?

Great Detective was originally launched in 1933 with the self-imposed task of publishing "the best detective-mystery fiction available", much of it with a distinctly English flavour. After nine issues or so there was a hiatus following which the magazine resurfaced briefly featuring entirely original fiction, but survived for only three issues in this guise.
