THE SAVOY REVIEWS

(Under Construction)

Periodicals on both sides of the Atlantic regularly reviewed aesthetic magazines in the 1890s and early years of the twentieth century. Some reviews would be fairly lengthy essays; others might only be a sentence or two in length; occasionally, the critic would compare one magazine to another. As was typical of the period, most reviews were published unsigned. This digital repository of historical reviews offers insight into the critical reception of Y90s magazines at the time of their production. Users can read Y90s Reviews online and also, if interested, examine the xml markup used to encode them.


From Christian Union “The Pagan Review”: Review of The Pagan Review

Unattributed
This new British publication is but a moderate straw, which indicates the blowing of no very violent wind. It is not an organized assault upon any citadel of received doctrine its promoters do not appear to be troubled about creeds.

From Lippincott’s Monthly “An Organ and a Reform”: Review of The Pagan Review

Unattributed
“THE Pagan Review” is the alarming title of a new British magazine, which entered on its career of devastation in September. It is not very much to look at, and offers for the customary shilling but sixty-four smallish pages, with no cover to speak of: what engine of reform has not been hampered by mundane limitations at the start?

From The Saturday Review “The Pagan Review”: Review of The Pagan Review

Unattributed
The Savoy (Smithers) declines to be considered an offshoot of the Yellow Book and although many of the contributors are the same, it is free from some of the offences of the older periodical.
