The Gentleman's Journal, or the Monthly Miscellany

Country: UK
Total Issues: 31

The first British magazine to run recognisable fiction. Mayo calls it "a melange of letters, essays, occasional poems, informative articles, reviews of new books and plays, gossip, news, and enigmatical verse. The tales .. are mostly satirical adventure stories, amorous histories, or tales of intrigue and gallantry. Stories were anonymous and many were probably by Motteux himself.
