Cassell's Family Magazine 1875-1896

Enjoy articles on cooking, fashion, gardening, nature - plus features like what to expect on a railway journey or on a rainy day in London. Lots of fiction and novel serializations, of course!

Century Magazine 1882-1898
In America, the premiere general-interest magazine in Victorian days was The Century Magazine. This fascinating collection brings you articles on history, archaeology, Native Americans, the Civil War (including the complete "Battles and Leaders of the Civil War"), world travel and exploration, American politics, and so much more. You'll also find serializations of complete books, including the life of Abraham Lincoln, the life of Napoleon, the memoirs of Talleyrand, George Kennan's investigation of Siberian exile camps, and many others. Plus, of course, short stories and novels by top American and British authors, delightful poetry, and amazing photography.

Chatterbox 1872-1923*
Enjoy more than three decades of one of the world's most popular children's magazines! Each volume is a bit over 400 pages, packed with short, informative articles, stories, poetry and puzzles. Most of all, this magazine is known for its fabulous artwork, including hundreds of illustrations by famed animal artist Harrison Weir. (Please note that these magazines were enjoyed by generations of young people; some volumes have missing or damaged pages, and some pictures have been colored in by talented young Victorians!) *At this time we have been unable to locate the 1919 volume, which was apparently a transition year in which the magazine changed to a new series.

The Girl's Own Paper 1880-1902
Explore the changing world of the Victorian woman in this remarkably progressive magazine. Conservative in the beginning, the GOP soon begins to promote education and recognize that even a "gentlewoman" may need to work for a living! You'll find over 800 pages of fashion, cooking, crafts, and household tips in every volume - plus articles on science, history, government, nature, education, women's work and more! Every issue is packed with short fiction, serials and poetry. Beautifully illustrated, with color plates in many volumes.
