Pirates, Industry and War: British Magazine Maps of the 18th Century

British Magazine Map

Pirates, Industry and War were featured heavily in 18th Century British news.  Monthly topical and current events magazines evolved as a popular publication style at this time to help educated males in a growing Empire keep up with the latest events.  The most prominent and among the earliest was Gentleman’s Magazine, which began as a digest reprinting the best articles from the slew of dailies and weeklies available in London.  Over time it and its many competitors began to offer original content.

This website reproduces a variety of maps from the MSU Map Library Collection which appeared in British magazines in the 18th century.
