Pitcher's annotated catalogue of its contents ("Literary Magazine" and "British Review" for 1788) reveals its explicit emphasis on biography. The great majority of these articles concern French notables, or the less familiar characters attached to them, with a clear editorial interest in contemporaries active in the ferment of the French Revolution. The emphasis on things French is also reflected in reviews and articles translated from French sources (including papers published by scientific societies). The editor records details of the original poems from "Angelina," but generally shows that the magazine reprints conventional fare. The "American Connection" is shown to be implicit from the outset of publication insomuch as the spelling adopted in early volumes is that established by Noah Webster, and not that followed by every other "British Magazine" (or the "Literary" after 1791). Pitcher also remarks where the political bias of this magazine is strong and conspicuous.
