Growth of interest in the periodical literature of the past has emphasized increasingly the need for specialized hand lists, a need which the American Union List of Serials, the British Union Catalogue of the Periodical Publications in the University Libraries of the British Isles, and other existing indexes cannot answer. To satisfy one area of this need, William S. Ward has compiled a near-definitive index and finding list of periodicals and newspapers of the English Romantic period. In it are reflected the holdings of almost eleven hundred American, Canadian, and British libraries and newspaper offices. The volume is also the first to list titles and library locations of all the newspapers, magazines, and other serials published in the British Isles during the years between the French Revolution and the Great Reform Bill.

Excerpt from The Inspector, Literary Magazine and Review, 1827, Vol. 2 The charms of society, and the necessity that the afl'ections which Nature has implanted in us should be decentl satisfied, illustrate the advantages of marrying, were it not desirab e for any thing else. But, besides this, we establish a fire-side of our own, we bind one heart to our service, and secure one bosom in which we may confide in seasons of adversity; and from which, in such dark hours, we may draw forth ainple consolationand affectionate sup rt: and this last, appears to me, the highest privilege of connubia bliss. When the results of business have thwarted the worldly man, and the caprice of dissipation, the gay man; or when, rhaps, some imagined coldness in another's conduct has wounded t e feelings of a friend, it is then that each of these may fly to his home, and seek in the bosom of his wife that alleviation to his uneasiness, which an interchange of thoughts and feelings ought not in any, and does not in most cases, falito ensure. I can easily imagine a man may pass through life singly with less care, but in sickness he will have to purchase kind ness with money; and, in misfortune, he will look in vain for that corp'panionship and countenance which it is the nature of the least wo yor most miserable to wish for. As a sign-post, whose direction line is washed off by the hand of time, is thought an incumbrance to a highway, so an old bachelor, without money to buy attention to his sufferings, is regarded by travellers, on the grand highway of life, as a thing of no interest, and not worthy of speculation. If this be the ease, and the hearts of all men yearn for social intercourse; if they do so, how access is it, then, to attach oneself, early in life, to an intelligent and amia ls woman.
