Temple Bar - A London Magazine For Town & Country Readers - 1883 vol. 2

£9.99

Product description

Temple Bar was a literary periodical of the mid and late 19th and very early 20th centuries (1860-1906). The complete title was Temple Bar - A London Magazine for Town and Country Readers. Temple Bar was founded a year after the first publication of William Thackeray's The Cornhill Magazine, by one of Charles Dickens' followers, Sala, who promised his readers that the periodical would be "full of solid yet entertaining matter, that shall be interesting to Englishmen and Englishwomen and that Filia-familias may read with as much gratification as Pater or Mater-familias", appealing to a solid, literate middle-class.
It published work by writers such as Amy Levy, Jane Austen, Wilkie Collins, Charles Reade, Robert Louis Stevenson, Anthony Trollope, Arthur Conan Doyle, E. F. Benson and Jessie Fothergill. Initially the magazine achieved a circulation of some 30,000 which eventually settled at around the 13,000 mark in the late 1860s. In 1868 Bentley's Magazine was merged into it. By 1896 circulation had dropped to about 8,000.Condition is well worn, with wear & tear on the spine and covers - the marbled pattern of the covers has blemishes caused by age. Book itself is half-bound in leather. Slight liquid mark on the edges of the binding, which is cut binding.
