Boys' and Girls' Penny Magazine [1832]

Country: UK
Total Issues: 34

The first weekly juvenile paper to cater to the general public. "The front cover was at least three-quarters taken up by a black and white illustration depicting some incident from the main story. This was usually a fairy-tale, but written for older children in probably the eight to twelve age group. The rest of the contents were short pieces of interest. Some issues I have show a further illustration on the back cover of one of the modern steam ships in that period, whilst others have advertisements of a supllement giving the full procession of the Lord Mayor's Show in colour for the sum of only twopence." (W.O.G. Lofts, "The Start of Boys' Papers")

The paper was hugely successful, and announced sales of their Christmas number of 835,000 copies sold in one week.
