Book Description:
This major series makes available one of Daniel Defoe's greatest, but least known works, his periodical the 'Review of the State of the British Nation'. 'The Review' covered his many interests, both literary and historical, and was published twice and latterly three times a week. The reason for the neglect of this work is due in part to the tiny original print run of just 400. Surviving runs are very rare and the condition of the originals is mainly poor. Defoe's Review played a significant role in the birth of the modern press. It was not a newspaper dealing in facts but a journal of opinion and discussion. Along with politics, war, trade and religion, Defoe also used the Review as an outlet for his amazing curiosity about ordinary human concerns. Defoe's Review the first example of the eighteenth century periodical essay paved the way for the Tatler and Spectator in later years.
