Baldwin is best known as the publisher of the London Magazine: or, Gentleman's Monthly Intelligencer, a monthly periodical. The London Magazine chronicled some of the most important events in the 18th century including the French and Indian War and the American Revolutionary War. It was also notable for being well illustrated by with maps by Thomas Kitchin and others. Upon his death in January of 1770, control of the London Magazine passed to his son Robert Baldwin (fl. 1746 - 1810).
