Description

This volume is a collection of studies of magazines in Britain and the US in the period 1730-1820. The studies concentrate on the editorial practices that seems to be standard at the time, such as editors falsely accusing others of plagiarism whilst plagiarizing works themselves, editors disguised the reprinting of something old as something new, invented scandal, and promised wonderful things would appear when in fact they never would or were never intended to.
