The Victorian era witnessed a flourishing of print trade journals but they have left little trace. Many of them are no longer extant, and those that are typically need to be consulted in the British Library. While some bibliographic scholarship has attempted to record details about these journals, our examination of them quickly uncovered discrepancies between details.
The Victorian Print Trade Journals Database is an attempt to provide all known information about this wildly popular genre. We collect as many details about journals and individual issues as possible, including highlighting conflicts between different bibliographic records.
