Reprint of the periodical printed by T. Bensley for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme and J. White in London from 1805 to 1809. (NCBEL III, 1270; Lowndes I, 296) Published in installments over the course of several years, this was Brydges first extensive compilation of antiquarian literary material. He based his design on the previous works of Thomas Blount, William Oldys and Horace Walpole. Each yearly volume contains a detailed table of contents and an index, with the last volume also having a cumulative table of contents and index to the obituaries.
