Macmillan's Magazine

Macmillan's Magazine was a monthly British magazine from 1859 to 1907 published by Alexander Macmillan.

The magazine was a literary periodical that published fiction and non-fiction works from primarily British authors. Thomas Hughes had convinced Macmillan to found the magazine. The first editor was David Masson.[1]

In 1868, David Masson resigned as editor of Macmillan's Magazine and left London to become Professor of English Literature at Edinburgh University. Alexander Macmillan appointed George Grove, who remained in this post for 15 years, becoming also a general literary adviser to the publisher.[1]

In its first decade of existence, Frederick Denison Maurice was a prolific contributor.
