Joseph Johnson’s Analytical Review, from May 1788 to December 1798, offered a radical contribution to journalism that for a decade confounded the British government’s attempts to restrict the freedom of the liberal press. The Analytical ceased publication shortly before Johnson went to jail for six months in February 1799 for selling a “seditious” pamphlet in his bookshop; however, in this article I argue that the unusual nature of the Analytical’s editorial policy was the underlying reason for the Crown prosecution that silenced the proprietor and his journal.
