The Metropolitan Magazine
Campbell and Cyrus Redding were the first editors of the Metropolitan. Frederick Marryat became editor in 1832. From vol. 6 (1833) onwards the magazine went under the name The Metropolitan Magazine. Marryat appointed the novelist Edward Howard (1793–1841) as a sub-editor in 1833: Howard serialized his semi-autobiographical Life of a Sub-Editor in the Metropolitan in 1834. Though Marryat resigned the editorship in 1835, he kept a connection with the Metropolitan for another year.
Contributors included the poet Maria Abdy (c. 1800–1867), the novelist and poet Isa Blagden (1816/17 – 1873), Eliza Cook, Antonio Gallenga, the mesmerist Spencer Timothy Hall (1812 – 1885), Hargrave Jennings (1817? – 1890), the philosopher Thomas Charles Morgan (c. 1780–1843), and the poet and novelist Annie Tinsley (1808–1885). Frederick Crouch, musician and composer (1808–1896), was the music reviewer until he emigrated to the United States in 1849. The magazine ceased publication in 1850.
