The Victorian Collection

The Victorian Collection features a wide assortment of British sociopolitical periodicals published from 1834 to 1900. This material covers such topics as religious revivals and Temperance movements, politics, agriculture, population studies, illustration, family values, and biography. These periodicals were produced and distributed to educate and persuade, so that, in the words of the editor for the Anti-Corn-Law Society, “the public mind may be kept in a state of information and vigilance” about social, cultural, and political issues. Each publication in this collection is held by L. Tom Perry Special Collections of the Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University.
