  • 19th Century UK Periodicals Series 1: New Readerships, October 30, 2014 - November 29, 2014  Icon
    This collection of nineteenth-century periodical literature covers the period 1800 to 1900.

The availability, on the scholar’s desktop, of six million pages of nineteenth-century journalism, fully searchable, sourced from the British Library, the National Library of Scotland and other specialist libraries, offers a collection of unparalleled range and diversity. The collection should be of interest to historians and students of nineteenth-century literature and culture, empire, feminism, the history of the book, the creative and performing arts, sport and leisure, science and medicine, the professions, in short, of all aspects of nineteenth-century life that the press encompassed.
