The Dublin Review, Vol. VII: August & November, 1839

London and Dublin: C. Dolman & J. Cumming, 1839. Hardcover. 8v, half green leather and patterned boards, very good, light ex-library marks, light wear and rubbing, spine mellowed to a brown color. 547 pp, index. Ostensibly a Catholic periodical founded in 1836 by Daniel O'Connell and colleagues, it lasted until 1969, but filled with reviews and articles not necessarily Catholic in content. Early issues had a succession of editors, irregular publication dates, and a lack of subscribers -which caused financial difficulties. With Henry Bagshawe taking over as editor from October 1837 to the end of 1863, things stabilized. The journal stayed away from extreme political views. Charles William Russell was an early and frequent contributor and drafted a number of his colleagues at Maynooth to contribute articles as well. John Cardinal Newman was an early supporter and encouraged Tractarian converts to publish in the journal. These two issues, bound together (nos. 13 & 14 overall), includes reviews of The Catechetical Lectures of St. Cyril, Report from the Select Committee on Controverted Elections and other works on election reform, Thomas Arnold's History of Rome, Dollinger on the Religion of Mohammed, the 4-volume Tracts for the Times (1833-39), Waterton's Essays on Natural History Chiefly Ornithology, several volumes on Roman Catholic doctrine, modern English novels including by Mrs. Gore, Capt. Marryat, Mrs. Trollope and Lady Blessington, Coney's Church Architecture of the Middle Ages, Honinghaus's book in German on Protestant Literature, Pettrigrews Medical Portrait Gallery and other works on quackery and medicine, Matenacranthiunk Nachneaz (Works of Ancient Armenian Writers) and other books on Armenia, Tyler's Henry of Monmouth, Charles Augustus Murray's Travels in North America, the First Annual Report on Births, Deaths and Marriages in England (1839), George Croker Foxe's The Death of Demosthenes, etc. Very good.
