Saturday Review (London)

"The Saturday Review of politics, literature, science, and art" was a London weekly newspaper established by A. J. B. Beresford Hope in 1855.

The first editor was the "Morning Chronicle"'s ex-editor John Douglas Cook (1808?–1868), and many of the earlier contributors had worked on the "Chronicle". [Barbara Quinn Schmidt, [ ‘Cook, John Douglas (1808?–1868)’] , "Oxford Dictionary of National Biography", Oxford University Press, 2004, accessed 4 Jan 2008] The politics of the "Saturday Review" was Peelite liberal Conservatism. The paper, benefitting from the recent repeal of the Stamp Act, aimed to combat the political influence of "The Times". [Andrews, Alexander,"Chapters in the History of British Journalism", 1859, pp. 232-4] Frank Harris was editor from 1894 to 1898. The first issue appeared on 3 November, 1855.

Contributors included Lady Emilia Dilke, Anthony Trollope. [Fielding, K. J., 'Trollope and the Saturday Review', "Nineteenth-Century Fiction", Vol. 37, No. 3 (Dec., 1982), pp. 430-442] , H. G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Eneas Sweetland Dallas and Max Beerbohm.

The "Saturday Review" continued to be published until 1938.
