Established in 1844 by John Kaye and Alexander Duff (and still published bi-annually), The Calcutta Review was an English quarterly journal. Kaye and Duff were also the journal’s early editors. The journal published articles, poems, acts, notices, records, reports, book reviews and notes. The articles contained discussions on history, literature, religion, culture and medicine and public health.

 

Published articles included Rev. E.J. Robinson’s ‘The Daughters of India: Their Social condition, Religion, Literature, Obligations, and Prospects’; Sydney Roberts’ ‘The Kama Mystery: A Study in Comparative Dramatics’; Robert Needham Cust’s letter ‘A Judicial Trial during the Indian Mutinies, 1838’; Nakur Chandra Biswas’ ‘Brahmabaibartta Puran on Diseases’; R.B.’s ‘Hindu Castes among the Mahrattas’; E.H.

The journal also carried comments and excerpts from newspapers and journals such as Bombay Gazette, Madras Mail, The Indian Daily News, The Times of India, The Englishman and Amrita Bazar Patrika.
