As part of my ongoing dissertation research, I’ve been attempting to amass for myself a coherent, chronological run of digitized volumes of the nineteenth-century British periodical The Englishwoman’s Domestic Magazine — particularly (for my own interest at least) during certain periods where women editors were involved.
While the magazine, which ran from 1852 to 1879, is old enough to be in the public domain, coverage is spotty between different libraries and databases — I’ve scanned some copies myself, filling in gaps in what I could find and download online. Recently quite a lot of it was uploaded via old microfilms scanned into the Internet Archive. It’s also covered in parts by Google Books and the Hathi Trust, but because it started over its numbering system three times (and published different versions with and without supplemental materials some months as well), it can be tricky to get a sense of the coherent timeline.
Anyone curious can view my ongoing progress getting it all organized here:
I’m also doing a more detailed index for the subset of specific volumes I’m studying for my dissertation, which of course I’m very happy to discuss/share with anyone remotely interested.
