There was an earlier Spectator, scribblings from which you must have studied at school. Steele and Addison were the main essayists, if my memory serves (which all too often it doesn't). Jolly good they were, too.

dearime is right, but that Spectator only lasted from 1711-12. I have them all and they are a good read, if a tad dated.

"must have studied from school"! DM, I didn't study anything of much at my school. Not its fault, I hasten to add, mine entirely. I only discovered The Speccie in the early '80s.

THanks, AK, that has saved me a search through Wiki.
