Athenaeum

The influential weekly Athenaeum (Saturdays) was founded in 1828. From 1869–1900 it was edited by Norman MacColl; from 1901–1916, it was edited by Vernon Rendall. (Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century Journalism 26).

The list below is not yet a complete list of the articles, reviews, and letters which Andrew Lang wrote for the Athenaeum. Scholars immediately interested in a more comprehensive list should try searches in the database British Periodicals, to which many research universities subscribe. (I hope to do this myself eventually.)
