People of the Period: A Collection of the Biographies of Upwards of Six Thousand Living Celebrities
This facsimile collection is a reprint of the original edition of the Victorian Who’s Who published in London in 1897—an extremely rare text which is not even held by the British Library. The biographical reference in two large volumes covers more than six thousand notable people from late nineteenth-century London society, including many who do not feature in other biographical sources such as the Dictionary of National Biography. It also includes non-British people and non-Western names like Meiji Emperor of Japan and Yukichi Fukuzawa. An extremely valuable source of information for any scholars studying Victorian social life and culture.
