In 1984 the Scottish cultural magazine New Edinburgh Review, originally founded in 1969, explicitly adopted the title Edinburgh Review from issue 67/8, taking the motto To gather all the rays of culture into one. It is still published and a member of the Eurozine network.
An earlier short-lived magazine with similar purposes, Edinburgh Magazine and Review, was published monthly between 1773 - 1776.
Started on October 10 1802 by Francis Jeffrey, Sydney Smith and Henry Brougham, it was published by Archibald Constable in quarterly issues until 1929. The magazine began as a literary and political review. Under its first editor, Francis Jeffrey, it was a strong supporter of the Whig party and laissez-faire politics, and regularly called for political reform. Its main rival was the Quarterly Review which supported the Tories. The magazine was also noted for its attacks on the Lake Poets, particularly William Wordsworth.
