A glance over the back pages of mid-nineteenth-century newspapers and periodicals published in London reveals that Wellington Street stands out among imprint addresses. Between 1843 and 1853, Household Words, Reynolds’s Weekly Newspaper, the Examiner, Punch, the Athenaeum, the Spectator, the Morning Post, and the serial edition of London Labour and the London Poor, to name a few, were all published from this short street off the Strand. Mary L. Shannon identifies, for the first time, the close proximity of the offices of Charles Dickens, G.W.M. Reynolds, and Henry Mayhew, examining the ramifications for the individual authors and for nineteenth-century publishing. What are the implications of Charles Dickens, his arch-competitor the radical publisher G.W.M. Reynolds, and Henry Mayhew being such close neighbours? Given that London was capital of more than Britain alone, what connections does Wellington Street reveal between London print networks and the print culture and networks of the wider empire? How might the editors’ experiences make us rethink the ways in which they and others addressed their anonymous readers as ’friends’, as if they were part of their immediate social network? As Shannon shows, readers in the London of the 1840s and '50s, despite advances in literacy, print technology, and communications, were not simply an ’imagined community’ of individuals who read in silent privacy, but active members of an imagined network that punctured the anonymity of the teeming city and even the empire.

George Reynolds is arguably the most prolific of all nineteenth-century English novelists, reaching an enormous audience through his thirty-six novels. Often selling in very large numbers in weekly one-penny installments, his works were known as by the most popular English novelist ever. Yet today, he remains almost unknown in the canon of English Literature. A serious radical, strongly pro-woman, and a leading Chartist seeking the vote for all men, Reynolds’ vigorous heroines differ notably from the Victorian novelists’ timid norm. He was strongly pro-Jewish and pro-Gypsy, very interested in French and Italian society, but wrote for ordinary English working people. Dickens thought him a dangerous leftist: for all these reasons, he was excluded from the elite literary world. G. W. M. Reynolds: The Man Who Outsold Dickens reestablishes Reynolds as a major figure of mid-nineteenth-century fiction and an author of European range and status. This book examines his massive popularity and notable concern with the problems of ordinary people, especially women, in the complex and often dangerous new world of the modern city. With the support of his wife Susannah, Reynolds’ enormous influence would also make a contribution to the cause of mass political education through his role in the development of popular fiction and journalism. This book is a major innovation in the field of Victorian literary studies, with relevance to popular cultural studies, the politics of literature, and publishing history, presenting properly a much overlooked major English novelist.

Extending the work of The Routledge Handbook to Nineteenth-Century British Periodicals and Newspapers, this volume provides a critical introduction and case studies that illustrate cutting-edge approaches to periodicals research, as well as an overview of recent developments in the field. The twelve chapters model diverse approaches and methodologies for research on nineteenth-century periodicals. Each case study is contextualized within one of the following broad areas of research: single periodicals, individual journalists, gender issues, periodical networks, genre, the relationship between periodicals, transnational/transatlantic connections, technologies of printing and illustration, links within a single periodical, topical subjects, science and periodicals, and imperialism and periodicals. Contributors incorporate first-person accounts of how they conducted their research and provide specific examples of how they gained access to primary sources, as well as the methods they used to analyze the materials.

This collection of essays takes a fresh look at the important role of illustration in Romantic literature. The late eighteenth century saw an explosion of illustrated editions of literary classics and the emergence of a new culture of literary art, including the innovative literary galleries. The impact of these developments on the reading and viewing of literary texts is explored in a series of case studies covering poetry, historical texts, drama, painting, reproductive prints, magazines and ephemera. Romanticism and Illustration argues for a more detailed study of illustration which includes the context of a wider circulation of images across different media. The modern understanding of the word 'illustration' fails to convey the complex relationship between the artist, the engraver, the publisher, the text and the audience in Romantic Britain. In teasing out the implications of this dynamic cultural matrix, this book opens up a new field of Romantic studies.

Der Klassiker unter den Dickens-Biographien: Forsters Biographie in drei Bänden erschien kurz nach Charles Dickens‘ Tod im Jahre 1870 und wurde schnell zu einem Standardwerk. Es lebt von der engen und langjährigen Freundschaft des Kritikers und Herausgebers John Forster mit dem berühmten Schriftsteller. Ohne literaturwissenschaftliche Pedanterie sieht er das Leben und den Charakter des Verfassers zeitloser Werke wie „Oliver Twist“ oder „A Christmas Carol“. Dabei wechseln sich packende Berichte aus erster Hand mit umfangreichen Auszügen aus dem Briefwechsel der beiden Freunde ab. Und da auch in fast all seinen Briefen seine besondere Meisterschaft des Erzählens zum Tragen kommt, wird jeder, der gerne Dickens liest, auch an dieser Biographie Gefallen finden. Die vorliegende Ausgabe greift auf die souveräne Übersetzung des Philologen Friedrich Althaus (1829-1897) zurück, die denselben Zeitgeist atmet wie das Werk Dickens‘.

Die Welt der fliegenden Händler ist ein hartes Pflaster für jedermann, der damit seinen Lebensunterhalt verdienen will. Sprachliche Gewandtheit, ein Gespür für die Wünsche der Kundschaft und eine Prise Humor im Erstellen eines Angebots gehören zu den unmittelbaren Voraussetzungen, welche diese Direktvertriebstätigkeit erfordert. Doktor Marigold ist ein alter Hase im Geschäft und leidet unter der amerikanischen Konkurrenz, aber hält sich so gut es eben geht über Wasser. Er übernimmt die Verantwortung für ein kleines stummes Mädchen, welches als junge hübsche Frau einem vorurteilsfreien jungen Mann den Kopf verdreht. Die beiden verlieben sich und heiraten. Schweren Herzens trennen sich Vater und Tochter voneinander, ohne zu wissen, ob sie sich jemals wiedersehen werden.
