29 editions published between 1898 and 2016 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The appearance of the first issue of The Tatler in 1709 is usually regarded as the beginning of periodical publication in England. Its founder, Richard Steele (1672-1729), intended 'a paper, which should observe upon the manners of the pleasurable, as well as the busy part of mankind ... by way of a letter of intelligence, consisting of such parts as might gratify the curiosity of persons of all conditions, and of each sex'. The 'datelines' of the reports, on news, literature, and plain gossip, were from the most famous coffee houses of early Georgian London, and the contributors included Jonathan Swift and Joseph Addison. The magazine was published for only two years, from April 1709 to January 1711: shortly afterwards, Steele and Addison co-founded The Spectator. This four-volume edition was issued in 1797 by a consortium of publishers, including John Nichols. Volume 4 contains numbers 190 to 271

"Best remembered as the author of Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift was a Dublin native whose political pamphleteering led to a London-based position as editor of a conservative periodical. This letter-diary, written between 1710-1713 and addressed to Swift's longtime lover, sparkles with the satirist's renowned wit and offers an intimate account of the personalities, politics, and drama of Queen Anne's court."--
