Part I: Women’s, Children’s, Humor, and Leisure covers the advent of commercial lifestyle publishing in Britain, and acts as a barometer of literacy and social mobility in the 1800s, with a particular focus on the rarely documented aspects of women, children, humour, and leisure activity in the Victorian age. The rise of magazine publishing is reflected in the selection of publications, spanning publications aimed at and tailored to various audiences, including women and children.
Part II: Empire covers the expansion of the Empire, addressing the economic as well as the non-mercantile aspects of British expansionism. It contains periodicals from Australia, Canada, Ceylon, India, New Zealand, and South Africa.
