Abstract

This latest addition to Palmegiano’s always useful set of bibliographies (which stretch back to Women and British Periodicals 1832–1867 in 1976) is likely to become one of the essential starting points for any serious researcher on the nineteenth-century press. It has already received glowing advance reviews from academic luminaries in press history (the volume prints them as blurbs both inside and on its cover). It does exactly what it says in the title, offering an annotated list of articles which have something to say about periodicals and newspapers from 48 different periodicals over a period that starts in 1802 and ends in 1900. After a very brief introduction of fewer than six pages and a two-page preface, the bibliography is divided into 48 sections according to journal. At the head of each section, there are a couple of lines that describe the relevant periodical in very general terms. Two final sections comprise Author and Subject indexes that I suspect most researchers will turn to first.
