Many University libraries hold runs of the Athenaeum, but there is only one run of "marked" copies which is held by the City University Library, London. The "marked" copies contain handwritten surnames beside the reviews and articles, from which it has been possible to establish the identity of review contributors.
|The mark shown here is taken from the review of George Eliot's The Mill on the Floss, recording the name of the contributor as Jewsbury, which refers to Geraldine Jewsbury, a well-known novelist and critic of the day.|
Below is a scanned image of the full review, published in Issue 1693 on April 7th, 1860. Note the handwritten editor's mark at the foot identitifying the contributor.
