Journals devoted to Classical studies began to appear during the late eighteenth century, and flourished during the nineteenth. Serving an audience of scholars and enthusiastic amateurs, they facilitated the exchange of information on a wide range of topics. The Cambridge Library Collection has reissued a selection of such journals, from the short-lived Musei Oxoniensis Litterarii Conspectus (1792) to the Journal of Philology, published between 1868 and 1920. Their main content covers the fields of classical literary criticism, ancient history and archaeology, and biblical studies. They also include material of related interest or topical appeal, such as research on the Rosetta Stone, a description of the Cornish language or a note on Mungo Park's death in Africa. Book reviews document how many now famous works were received by their contemporaries, and the series as a whole provides fascinating insights into the development of the discipline of 'classics'.
