["Joseph Dennie (1768 - 1812) was an American author and journalist who was one of the foremost men of letters of the Federalist Era. A Federalist, Dennie is best remembered for his series of essays entitled 'The Lay Preacher' and as the founding editor of 'Port Folio', a journal espousing classical republican values. Post Folio was the most highly regarded and successful publication of its time, and the first important political and literary journal in the United States. Under the pseudonym of Oliver Oldschool, Esq. Dennie wrote, 1n 1803, a scathing attack on Jeffersonian democracy, for which he was brought up on charges of seditious libel. While Dennie was acquitted, the severity of attacks leveled in Port Folio would henceforth be lessened." Wikipaedia.] The periodical ran until 1827 with the early volumes in 4to as here and changing to octavo with the 'New Series.' [Attributes: Soft Cover]
