Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century Journalism
The Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century Journalism is an attempt to provide a snapshot of British and Irish journalism in the nineteenth century, and a gateway to the period. Print journalism both shaped and reflected the complexities of its time, as the internet does now. The Dictionary takes its place beside distinguished predecessors and contemporaries, most notably the Waterloo Directory of English Newspapers and Periodicals 1800-1900 which is the most inclusive of its kind, and the more selective but invaluable British Literary Magazines and the Wellesley Index of Victorian Periodicals. The scope and remit of DNCJ lies somewhere between these landmarks. It is a one-volume, rapid reference work.
Stead's Index to Periodicals
W.T. Stead's indexes of periodical literature, produced annually from 1891-1903, are key sources for the study of serial publishing of the period. As well as shedding light on the contents of more than 300 serials - comprising 250,000+ article citations - the indexes provide data, analysis and commentary pertaining to the state of the periodical press in the year of each volume, via their extensive front and back matter.
Alfred Cotgreave's A Contents-Subject Index to General and Periodical Literature, published in 1900, brings to light the incidental contents of thousands of books and periodicals. The index is notable for its focus on subject-indexing material whose relevance to the subject is not indicated by its title. This work, therefore, provides a crucial service in revealing the location of more than 50,000 of the most concealed - yet relevant - items pertaining to a host of subjects.
The “Bookman” Directory of Booksellers, Publishers and Authors
A single-volume reference work, the Directory was published in 1893 under the direction of Sir William Robertson Nicoll, founding editor of The Bookman magazine. Aimed at those involved in the book trade or engaged in literary study, it provides information about the three major facets of the publishing industry referred to in its title. In sum, The Bookman Directory offers indispensable data about the individuals and organisations active in the book trade in the late-nineteenth century and provides a snapshot of the industry at this time.
