An online collection of British magazines, journals and specialty newspapers, 19th Century UK Periodicals provides an in-depth view of British life in the Victorian age. This first series in the five-series collection, New Readerships charts the rapid rise of publishing in a reading culture expanding through a rise in literacy and leisure and an explosion of sports and hobbies.
Includes a broad range of publications revealing the lifestyles, culture, pastimes and values of not only the elite class but the middle and working classes, as well. Most of the collection — roughly 95% — has been newly scanned from original materials not previously reissued since their original publication. 19th Century UK Periodicals features full-color images of materials originally published in color.
