Originally known as La Belle Assemblée (1806-1837), Bell’s Court and Fashionable Magazine was founded by the bookseller John Bell as a monthly magazine for women. Noted for its vibrant fashion plates, the journal also published serial fiction and articles on politics, science, and the theatre. Notable writers including Jane Porter and Mary Shelley contributed work, but readers were also encouraged to submit articles of their own for publication.
