Description

The archive material contained within this collection relates to the publication of various volumes and dates from the mid-1960s to the late 1970s, during the editorship of Alan Ross. The bulk of the material consists of correspondence, typically between Alan Ross (or other members of London Magazine staff) and the author, translator or editor of an original work, though it also includes various photographs, printers' estimates and invoices, manuscripts, typescripts, and galley proofs.

Administrative or biographical history

The twentieth-century incarnation of the London Magazine was launched in 1954, with John Lehmann as editor. Lehmann stated that the magazine was "for those who enjoy reading stories, poems and articles by the leading authors of today; for those who want to follow the development of new talent at home and abroad; [and] for those who look for first-class criticism by a first-class team of reviewers." Lehmann was succeeded by Alan Ross, who remained editor from 1961 until his death in 2001 and broadened the magazine's scope to include all the arts. The magazine was re-launched once more in 2002. London Magazine Editions were a series of individual books produced to complement the magazine itself, concentrating on works by contemporary authors and artists including novels, novellas and short stories, poetry, memoirs, biographies, criticism, and travel.
