From 1875 to 1896, Cassell's Family Magazine offered a fascinating look into the Victorian world. Primarily a women's magazine during this period, it brings you hundreds of articles on household management, cooking, and fashion. But it also brings you a glimpse into the lives of the Victorians, from the lady of the house to the lowly dustman. One of the most fascinating sections of this magazine is its monthly roundup of the latest inventions and discoveries in science and technology. And, of course, each volume is packed with short stories, serials and poetry.
Each volume is a complete annual, beginning in December and concluding the following November. Earlier volumes offer over 750 pages of Victoriana; in 1893 the magazine increases to 950 pages! Individual volumes are available for download for just $5 each - or save over 65% by ordering our complete 22-volume collection on two DVDs!
