The Critical Review or Annals of Literature


The Critical Review covered the controversial political and military events of the Seven Years’ War and inspired over 100 attacks accusing it of Jacobite, Tory and treasonous sympathies. The journal was edited for its first seven years by Tobias Smollett and reflected the slashing, combative style and intellectual range of its editor. The Critical Review reflects the political, scientific and literary debate of the times. Available to order at Amazon and Pickering & Chatto Publishers
