From Wikipedia: "The second Edinburgh Review, founded in 1802, became one of the most influential British magazines of the 19th century. It promoted Romanticism and Whig politics. Started on 10 October 1802 by Francis Jeffrey, Sydney Smith and Henry Brougham, it was published by Archibald Constable in quarterly issues until 1929. It began as a literary and political review. Under its first permanent editor, Francis Jeffrey (the first issue was edited by Sydney Smith) , it was a strong supporter of the Whig party and liberal 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."

9 Landscapes of England : British Heritage Series
Surrey, UK Crown Books 1985 0862833345 / 9780862833343 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
160 pages, very well illustrated in color, cloth, dj, oblong, 11-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, very good. From the dj: England has some of the most enchanting landscapes in the world. Her varied scenes dance before the eye in a kaleidoscope of color and form. The rising peaks of the Lake District form a suitable backdrop to the spreading lakes while the rolling downlands provide some of the gentlest and best-loved scenes of rural England. Stands of forest give way to the hedgerow-trimmed fields of waving wheat and grazing stock which are so typical of the countryside. And tucked within this landscape of tree and crop are the villages whose rose-bedecked cottages and stone-spired churches have made the open fields so peculiarly English. In a wealth of full-color photographs, this book captures the best of the English scene. The glowing tones o;f the landscape reveal the peculiar charm of the country which has captured the hearts of millions.
