Blackwood's Magazine; Vol. CCIII. No. MCCXXX-MCCXXII, April-June 1918.
Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1918. Presumed First Edition, First printing bound thus. Hardcover. 425-840 pages. Contents for issues for April, May, and June bound at back. Cover has wear and soiling. Some page discoloration. Title page has January crossed through. Index not present. Blackwood's Magazine was a British magazine printed between 1817 and 1980. It was founded by William Blackwood and was originally called the Edinburgh Monthly Magazine. The first number appeared in April 1817 under the editorship of Thomas Pringle and James Cleghorn. Blackwood relaunched the journal as Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine under his own editorship. Aside from essays it also printed a good deal of horror fiction and was an important influence on later Victorian writers such as Charles Dickens, the Brontë sisters, and Edgar Allan Poe. One late nineteenth century triumph was the first publication of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness in the February, March, and April 1899 issues of the magazine. The magazine ceased publication in 1980, having remained for its entire history in the Blackwood family. Contributors included: George Eliot, Joseph Conrad, John Buchan, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas de Quincey, Margaret Oliphant, and Frank Swettenham. In Dorothy Sayers's novel Five Red Herrings the Scottish Procurator-Fiscal is mentioned as "reading the latest number of Blackwood to while away the time" as they spend hours waiting for the murderer to reveal himself. Vera Brittain lists "copies of Blackwood's Magazine" among her literary possessions in her description of her time as V.A.D. nurse in Malta in Testament of Youth.
