Miscellany and Review History

The Miscellany and Review made its appearance in January, 1853. T.F. Risk was its editor. Each number contained fifty-six pages; it was not illustrated. It was devoted to "education, the science of government, home commerce," literature, miscellany, etc. Its articles were short and mostly selected - "intended to be of practical mien," abjuring "fancy and flowers." Only a few numbers of the Miscellany and Review were published.
(From the Encyclopedia of the History of Missouri by Alexander N. De Menil, 1901).

Prospectus 

The Monthly Miscellany & Review is published simultaneously at Memphis and St. Louis, and issued on the First day of each month, at TWO DOLLARS per annum.
