SUMMARY

Over 7300 Scottish Victorian newspapers and periodicals are described in detail, with up to twenty-five descriptors per title, and 2500 photofacsimile title pages. Eighty Scottish libraries, public, private and specialist, have been combed to provide locations for these publications, which outnumbered and were more pervasive than the printed book in Victorian Scotland. All changes of title are listed and cross-referenced. Thorough subject indexing as well as indexing by place of publication and personal name provide students and scholars with ready access to this vast source of Scottish history and culture. Every imaginable field is covered: Gaelic literature, church history, parish publications, antiquities, the anti-slave trade movement, parliamentary reports, humour, trade, labour, feminism, charity, medicine, law, the universities, temperance, suppressed periodicals, fiction, poetry. A first resource for all students of Scottish culture. "A monumental work of immense value to all interested in Scottish culture and society in the nineteenth century. ... scrupulous accuracy and lucidity, informative comments... a model of its kind"-Professor David Daiches, University of Edinburgh. "An ambitious survey of the Scottish periodical press during its heroic age... by far the fullest account of the subject. ... will provide major impetus for new research in this burgeoning field. A giant step forward. No library with pretensions to seriousness can afford to be without it."--Professor Wm Donaldson, University of Edinburgh, Author, Popular Literature in Victorian Scotland.North, John S. is the author of 'Waterloo Directory of Scottish Newspapers and Periodicals, 1800-1900', published 1989 under ISBN 9780921075059 and ISBN 0921075057.
