    As I was searching around Google Books, I found this great publication called the Baptist Quarterly Review. It looks like a series of Baptist publications from around the end of the 19th century.

    Here's a link to the first issue, at which time it looks like it was just called the Baptist Review. The full text of a couple of issues are completely scanned and available for reading/download on Google books.

    Has anyone ever heard of this publication, or know anything about it's history, affiliations, or whatever?

    Library holdings

    The International Baptist Theological Seminary [IBTS] in Prague has all issues going back to Volume 1, 1922. Thought y'all might be interested in this piece of trivia. :laugh:

    The IBTS Library holds the largest English collection of theological books on the Contenient.

    According to Baptist historian Thomas Armitage, J.R. Baumes began publication of the Baptist Review in 1878 and continued to edit it until 1885, when he sold the newspaper. Baumes was a pastor and (briefly) Union chaplain during the Civil War.

    The name was changed to the Baptist Quarterly Review and was edited by Baptist historian Henry Vedder and Robert MacArthur, longtime pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in New York City. MacArthur was one of the founders of the Baptist World Alliance and served as its president for many years.
