IX
THE LATER REVIEWS AND THE FORTNIGHTLY

Several excellent periodical publications are worth notice as obvious efforts to exploit the success of the Edinburgh, Quarterly and Westminster. The Investigator, was a 240-page quarterly review, edited 1820-24 by W. B. Collyer , T. Raffles, and J. B. Brown. Its only claim to interest here lies in its occasional criticisms of contemporary authors. The British Critic, Quarterly Theological Review and Ecclesiastical Record ( 1827- 1843), as its title implies, devoted itself mainly to religious matters. Under the successive editors, Edward Smedley, J. S. Boone , John Henry Newman, and others, it published, in spite of its theological bias, some criticism of value. The Dublin Review of London, which was begun in 1836 and is now approaching its centenary as a prosperous enterprise, is a better example of a real imitator. Up to 1890 it contained occasional critical reviews of significance, but in recent years has been almost completely nonliterary. India in English literature was extensively treated through the excellent 250-page quarterly, the Calcutta-Review ( 1844- 1896), a popular and interesting imitator of the great London and Edinburgh Reviews. The North British Review of Edinburgh, a heavy quarterly publication of 284 pages, edited by Dr. David Welsh and contributed to by David Brewster, contained much good material in occasional literary articles, and was a conscientious imitator of its great rival, the Edinburgh Review. It appeared from 1844 to 1877. The Irish Quarterly Review of 1851 ( Dublin) was another slavish follower of the Edinburgh tradition, but the New Quarterly Review
