This timely anthology, full of surprises, will stimulate ideas and discussion. It is a collection of writing, and some cartoons, from the nineteenthcentury British periodical press-which was the popular press of its day. The pieces range from articles and book reviews to short stories and poetry, and practical advice to intending emigrants. Some of the writers are anonymous, and others bear familiar and illustrious names: Charles Dickens, Caroline Chisholm, William Thackeray, Henry Parkes, Louisa Lawson.
