THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, The GENERAL Index, from its Commencement of the MAGAZINE in 1731 to the End of the Year 1818, in Four Octavo Volumes, is in great forwardness at the Press. The First and Second Volumes, extending from 1731 to 1786, being now ready for delivery; and the whole will be completed in the month of February.
This Index, which will be of the greatest utility to those who possess the whole set of the most antient and best - supported Magazine, is divided into Seven distinct Portions.
1. Essays, Original Letters, &c. &c. 5. Musical Publications.
7. Promotions, Births, Mar4. Books announced for Publication. riages, Obituary, &c.
A Fifth Volume will at the same time be published, containing a complete List and Index to the Plates and Wood-cuts, from 1731 to 1818 inclusive.--This Volume, though the proper companion to the other, is not indispensably attached to them; but is printed independantly, for the accommodation of curious Collectors.
It is of such an Index that Dr. Johnson thus emphatically speaks :
“ The Utility of a GENERAL Index, to so Miscellaneous a Work as the GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, when by the Indulgence of the Publick it has increased to [Ninety] Volumes, is too evident to be questioned ; and we therefore hope that we are now making some return to our Friends, however unequal, for the Favours which we have received; for not to be able to find what we know to be in our possession, is a more vexatious circumstance than the mere want of what we have neglected to procure. This Index will not only assist the Forgetful, but direct the Inquisitive. It will enable those who read for higher purposes than mere Amusement, to class the many subjects which our extensive Plan has included, and to bring together much useful Knowledge in Theology, Morality, Politicks, Coinmerce, Mathematicks, Philosophy, and Biography.”
*** The Proprietors of this long-established Monthly PublicATION, from motives of respect to their numerous Subscribers --to their respectable Contributors - and to the Publick in general - take this opportunity of stating some of the leading features of the Work, which, from its well-known credit, have scarcely ever been publicly mentioned.
The GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE was begun in January 1731; and at an early period, and for several years, had the powerful support of Dr. Johnson, Dr. HAWKESWORTH, and many of the most distinguished Literati; and, by a succession of numerous Correspondents of the first rank in every branch of Science, it has for nearly a Century maintained a decided superiority, as a Literary Publication, over all its younger Brethren. After witnessing the birth and decline of various Competitors-the Proprietors will not recall the dead into notice, or needlessly particularize the survivors ;-but they may be allowed to say, in the words of one of their earliest and ablest Associates, “ that the GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE has been long known and esteemed wherever the English Language is spoken;" and that “ few Lives would have had more Readers than that of EDWARD CAVE, the original Compiler, if all those who have received improvement from him should retain so much kindness for their Benefactor, as to enquire after his conduct and character.” In fact, through the medium of the Gentleman's MAGAZINE, many of the brightest Ornaments of the Episcopal Bench, and others of the first distinction as Scholars, have conveyed their sentiments to the Publick, from its commencement to the present period.
It is with the greatest satisfaction that the Proprietors can appeal to a long series of Volumes for a demonstration of sincere attachment to the ESTABLISHED DOCTRINES of the Church of ENGLAND: and the Reader who may dissent from particular parts of those Doctrines, must acknowledge, that due attention has been paid to every fair argument adduced in their occasional Correspondence. It is against the Infidel only, and not the conscientious Dissenter, that defiance has been hurled.
In POLITICKS, they have avoided all Party Spirit, and constantly opposed every species of innovation of a Revolutionary tendency. In the genuine spirit of Englishmen, they have embraced objects only which conduced to the true INTERESTS and ConstitUTIONAL SUPPORT O THEIR COUNTRY. The Student now at the Public Schools, or at th Universities, nay therefore be confidently assured, that the character the Gentleman's MAGAZINE, both in Religious and POLITICAL PRIN CIPLES, is well established.
A faithful Report for nearly Ninety Years will be found, of the PROceedings in PARLIAMENT, originally begun by Mr. Cave and Dr. John-' son; — with a faithful epitome of the London Gazettes, and an Abstract of the most material Foreign Occurrences, collected from the best sources of information.
In these Volumes may be traced the origin of many a Local Historyå study in which this Country now stands pre-eminently conspicuous ; and it was in the Gentleman's MAGAZINE that the plan of a regular OBITUARY (which has been often imitated, but never equalled,) first originated. And in the Department of the Review of Books, which forms no small portion of each Number, the criticisms are neither serere in condemnation, nor profuse in applause.
To their old acquaintances it would be unnecessary to say more: but as they anticipate the support of new ones, they may confidently state, that these Volumes are a rich storehouse of BIOGRAPHICAL, HISTORICAL, and TOPOGRAPHICAL Information. Such indeed has been in general the excellence of the Compositions, that a respectable Member of the University of Oxford has selected from them Four large Volumes in Octavo ; and acknowledges, that “ so abundant is the Garden, that he was at a loss where to cull the choicest Flowers."
It is superfluous for the Proprietors to dwell longer on the subject than merely to observe, that the resources of its Venerable Editor are so abundant, that a Volume four times the bulk of its present form could be produced Monthly; and they flatter themselves nothing in it would appear but what was interesting to the Reader.
