It was published by Edward Cave, pseud. From 1738 to 1746, Edward Cave published in occasional issues of The Gentleman's Magazine semi-fictionalized accounts of contemporary debates in the two Houses of Parliament under the title of Debates in the Senate of Lilliput. The names of the speakers in the debates, other individuals mentioned, politicians and monarchs present and past, and most other countries and cities of Europe ("Degulia") and America ("Columbia") were thinly disguised under a variety of Swiftian pseudonyms. This was because they were using the characters and culture from Jonathan Swifts book, Gullivers Travels. The disguised names, and the pretense that the accounts were really translations of speeches by Lilliputian politicians, were a reaction to an Act of Parliament forbidding the publication of accounts of its debates.Cave employed several notable writers on this series: William Guthrie (June 1738 November 1740), Samuel Johnson (November 1740 February 1743), and John Hawkesworth (February 1743 December 1746). This 1740 publication includes a variety of important and interesting topics including. Commentary on the War of Austrian Succession.
