Books for the Bairns

"Stead's Books for the Bairns, begun in March 1896, and issued at the price of a penny, one number per month, with pink, usually pictorial paper covers and profuse illustrations inside, and containing as a rule 64 pages. This series ran till about 1916, after which it was variously continued, revived and reprinted well into the middle of the '20s.

It was quite highbrow in character, anticipating something of the seriousness of the later Children's Encyclopedia. Its aims were frankly and unambiguously educational and edifying, with a strong liberal and protestant bias in keeping with the other activities of its founder, the distinguished reformer W. T. Stead (1849-1912) who went on editing it until he was drowned in the disaster of the Titanic, when his daughter, Estelle, succeeded him. It appealed particularly to high-minded fathers and to schoolmasters.

To begin with it chiefly reproduced classical works suitable for children in abridged and adapted forms, such as Robinson Crusoe, Aesop's Fables, Gulliver's Travels, etc. or it gave simplified (and Whiggified) history and nature study, or even hymns. Only later did this series admit specially written modern fairy stories adapted to the newer ideas of what the child's taste is, or rather what it ought to be. There was even a French edition of Books for the Bairns - Livres de la Rose. Often these little books were employed as regular school text books." (Maurer)

Borderline

Borderline was a digest-sized magazine, subtitled "the magazine which dares the unknown." Initially it was issued monthly but by the fifth issue, perhaps sooner, it had gone bi-monthly. The first issue was dated September 1964, the fifth March 1965, the sixth May 1965, the seventh July 1965, the eighth September 1965, the ninth (v2 #1) November 1965, and the tenth (v2 #2) February 1966. The magazine contained no fiction. It dealt with mysticism and para-psychological phenomena. Topics such as phrenology, prophecy, ESP, ghost hunting, and automatic writing were common. The seventh issue did include a piece by L. Ron Hubbard but, in general, the magazine would be of little interest to even the most ardent collector.
