Originally published in 1987. In this volume, the author unearths the rich sources for the study of colonial history provided by the myriad periodical publications which flourished in the early and mid-Victorian period. This was an age in which the printed word reigned supreme as a form of communication. Through the extensive listing of this bibliography – close to 3000 entries drawn from some fifty London-based magazines – we see the rich and diverse threads which interwove to form the colourful fabric which was the British Empire at the height of its grandeur.
