In Victorian society the circulation of periodicals and newspapers is thought to have been larger and more influential than that of books. To investigate this premise, J. Don Vann and Rosemary T. VanArsdel commissioned eighteen bibliographic essays by some of the world's leaading scholars in the field of periodical research. The collection is a guide to the exploration of Victorian society including professions (law, medicine, architecture, the military, science); the arts (music, illustration, theatre, authorship and the book trade); occupations and commerce (transport, finance, trade, advertising, agriculture); popular culture (temperance, sport, comic periodicals); and both lower- and upper-class journals (workers' and university students).

Victorian Periodicals and Victorian Society, originally published in 1994, has become an indispensable reference work for all Victorian scholars. University of Toronto Press is pleased to make this important book available to all students and researchers in an affordable paperback edition.
