Victorian Print Media

A Reader

John Plunkett and Andrew King

Victorian culture was dominated by an ever expanding world of print. A tremendous increase in the volume of books, newspapers, and periodicals, was matched by the corresponding development of the first mass reading public. Victorian Print Media: A Reader consists of edited extracts from nineteenth-century sources which discuss all aspects of the production and circulation of print media. The extracts are organized into thematically arranged sections such as authorship and journalism, reading spaces, and the influence of print.
