The Grand Magazine of Magazines or Universal Register was a short-lived 18th-century publication in London. Its first issue was in July 1758, and it ceased publication with the November 1759 issue. The magazine contained material of general interest, including world news. It was best noted for its use of illustrations. Each issue included four or five engravings. Other magazines of the day seldom featured more than three.
