Coming in September 2019

Shopkeepers' Advertising Novelties (The Strand, 1895)
London shopkeepers had many ways of getting the attention of passers-by, including plates seemingly suspended in mid-air, a "living picture" of a donkey (featuring a living donkey!), a mummified cat, a two-headed goose, and funhouse mirrors.
All About Oranges (GOP, 1892)
In the 1890's, Britain imported nearly 32,000 tons of oranges every year; here are some delicious things to do with this wonderful fruit, from marmalades to orange creams.
Women Warriors (Lady's Realm, 1902)
Famous fighters of many lands and eras, including Kenau Hessalaar of Holland, Jeanne D'Arc, Jeanne Hachette, and the Maid of Saragossa.
Apples as Food (Demorest, 1882)
Apples for breakfast, apples for dinner... Apple Sauce, Apple Custard, Apple Pudding, Apple Snow, Apple Tart... these are just a few of the tantalizing offerings for apple-lovers!
Concerning Covent Garden (CFM, 1877)
A look at "busy, crowded, jostling, dirty Covent Garden," London's primary market-place for fruit, vegetables and flowers.
My Diving-Dress (The Strand, 1894)
A seeker of novel experiences finds that diving might best be left to the experts!
How I Engage My Servants (CFM, 1877)
"Before any steps are taken to inquire into character, a definite understanding should be come to between the mistress and servant. On this careful and definite agreement, most of the future comfort of both depends."
Amusing Juvenile Answers (CFM, 1889)
Odd answers to test questions are nothing new; amongst this delightful collection is the information that "a fort is a place to put men in, and a fortress is a place to put women in."
Our Friends the Horses, Part II (CFM, 1889)
"The English may or may not be the finest horsemen in the world, but I doubt whether any other nation--with the exception, perhaps, of the Arabs--are on such thoroughly confidential, friendly terms with their horses as the English."
The Prophet's Chamber (GOP, 1901)
On the best way to arrange a guest-room.
Writing for the Press (Ingalls' Home Magazine, 1889)
"Oh, let me advise you and beseech you not to write for the press unless you possess that most valuable and most beautiful of personal gifts--common sense."
Little To-Bo (St. Nicholas Magazine, 1889)
Charming tribute to a little girl (who, happily, doesn't end up dead at the end of it).
Practical Points of Law (GOP, 1901)
A series of fillers on various intriguing points of English law in Victorian times. In this issue: Dogs; Licences; Wedlock; Infants.
Pianoforte Fronts and How to Decorate Them, (GOP, 1885)
Beautiful patterns from artist Fred Miller.
