Examines British magazine literature of the 18th and early 19th century, and the study of serials in general. Dr. Pitcher has provided substantial lists of emendations to published checklists relevant to the field. Also, he has given not only fifty case histories to introduce authors who were published extensively in the magazines, but also compiled an index of principal works by many of the 18th century essayists who followed Addison and Steele.
