Conder, Josiah born in London 17th September, 1789, was the son of a bookseller, and very early displayed a taste for literature. In 1814, being at the time a bookseller, he purchased the Eclectic Review, of which he continued to be editor until 1837. Under his management the Eclectic Review received the assistance of many eminent men among the Nonconformists, such as Robert Hall, John Foster, Dr. Chalmers, Dr. Vaughan, and others. In 1818 he published a treatise On Protestant Noncoformity (Lond. 2 vols. 8vo); in 1824 The Star in the East, a poem; and in in 1834 a new translation of the Epistle to the Hebrews, with Notes. In 1836 he edited The Congregational Hymn-book, issued under the sanction of the Congregational Union. Besides these, he issued An Analytical View of all Religions (1838, 8vo); Exposition of the Apocalypse (8vo); Literary History of N.T. (1845, 8vo). His works are chiefly compilations, but are carefully executed, and well adapted to popular use. He died Dec. 27, 1855.
