The Spectator [1711]

Country: UK
Total Issues: 555+80=635

Mayo says: "On the whole the Spectator published less fiction than the Tatler, perhaps because it gave increased emphasis to literary criticism. Nevertheless The Spectator did make one new and significant addition to the repertory of 18thC magazine fiction: the oriental tale." Examples are "The Vision of Mirza", "The Letter from a Monkey", "The Story of Hilpa".
