The Spectator was a daily publication founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele, original appearing in 555 numbers from 1711 to 1712. The paper was revived without the involvement of Steele in 1714, appearing thrice weekly for six months, and these papers when collected formed the eighth volume.
