The Poetry of the Gentleman’s Magazine, 1731-1800: An Electronic Database of Titles, Authors, and First Lines, An Ongoing Project, 2nd edition (2013).  Available at http://www.gmpoetrydatabase.org; Web.

This database is designed to provide users with a comprehensive, fully browsable and searchable list of the 12,390 poems (of which 4,775 are by identified authors) printed in the Gentleman’s Magazine from its beginning in 1731 through 1800.  Presented chronologically, with full titles, first lines, authors (if known), signatures, references or justifications for attribution, and additional historical information where needed, the database is intended to offer researchers ready, rapid, thorough, and user-friendly electronic access to the vast resources of literary (and in many cases historical) source material encompassed in the poetry of the Gentleman’s Magazine, one of the greatest repositories of verse in the eighteenth century.  An alphabetical synopsis by contributor incorporating all of the 1,262 known authors of poetry printed in the GM serves as an authorial cross reference to the contents of the database as well as providing dates of birth and death and authors’ occupations, if known.

The database enables researchers of eighteenth-century print culture and of the Gentleman’s Magazine in particular to examine trends in publication and identify clusters of subjects that found favor with poets, readers, and publishers alike.  It permits students of specific poets an improved opportunity to track the printing or reprinting of their works.  It showcases the printing of poems produced by dozens of eighteenth-century women writers, many of whom were ignored by mainstream scholarship until very recently.  It provides eighteenth-century historians expanded access to the magazine’s tremendous fund of source material on a variety of topics ranging across political, military, colonial, and economic history as well as science and medicine, theology, literary taste, the arts, leisure, and attitudes toward such social issues as slavery and the role of women.

Though constructed to stand fully alone, The Poetry of the Gentleman’s Magazine, 1731-1800, complements the author’s Attributions of Authorship in the Gentleman’s Magazine, 1731-1868: An Electronic Union List, Web (Charlottesville: Bibliographical Society of the Univ. of Virginia, 2003) http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/bsuva/gm2; Web.

Attributions of Authorship in the “Gentleman’s Magazine,” 1731-1868: An Electronic Union List. Charlottesville: Bibliographical Society of the University of Virginia, 2003. Available at http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/bsuva/gm2; Web.
This electronic book, published by the Bibliographical Society of the University of Virginia, brings together in one key-word-searchable and fully browsable electronic text all of the 25,585 then-known attributions of authorship of letters, articles, reviews, poems, and other items printed in Georgian England’s greatest magazine, gleaned from all then-available published and unpublished sources for the GM. It consists in part of an integration and correction of the three earlier Gentleman’s Magazine electronic books (published by the Bibliographical Society of the University of Virginia in 1996, 1997, and 1999, respectively) listed below; but it goes far beyond those texts to expand the citations of thousands of items in order to make them more conducive to key-word searches, to create new indices of contributors and pseudonyms, and to incorporate over 6,000 new finds. Encompassing 25,585 items from some 2,362 contributors and presented in a logical and clear sequence, the database, approximately 1,759 pages of browsable text, is constructed to be searchable electronically by volume number, page number, date, title, author, pseudonym, and key-word. All attributions are cross-referenced, appearing first in a chronological listing and then in a synopsis by contributor, both of which sections are fully browsable, so that users may easily examine each attribution in its chronological context. Accompanying the text is a browsable index of pseudonyms and initials used in the contributors’ signatures.
