    Abstract

    Book synopsis: This book examines the outbreak of print in late Victorian Britain. It joins categories that are normally separated: literature/popular culture, books/magazines, publishers/newsagents, and media studies/media history. The approach is through material culture, archival material that is theorised and gendered. Chapters focus on authorship, production, and gender in relation to Dickens, Pater, Ruskin, Eliot, Symons, and James, and serials such as Master Humphrey's Clock, the Westminster Review, Artist and Journal of Home Culture, Publishers' Circular, Yellow Book and Savoy.
