The POETICAL REGISTER was first published annually and then biennially by Rivingtons, the high-church publishers of the British Critic (q.v.). Beginning in 1801, the Poetical Register fell farther and farther behind, until the volume for 1810–11 appeared in 1814. Its reviews were generally brief. Like the Annual Review (q.v.), with which it competed, the Register’s comprehensive coverage would have found a ready market among British expatriates in India and Australia. 750[Shelley] Original Poetry.
