The Chartist Circular

Total Issues: 146

A four-page tri-column weekly published in Glasgow from 1839 - 1842. Most of the contents are non-fiction and fairly interesting, if repetitive, but each issue contained a fair amount of anecdotal filler, and every so often a serialized story makes an appearance; nearly always the last page had a verse or two on it.

Weekly issues were also published in monthly parts; some issues were labelled 'New Series'. For a time, also included a supplement entitled 'Chatterbox Newsbox' (Jan 1914 - Dec-1926, 156 issues). "Originally a highly moralistic children's paper which sought to draw children away from the horrors of the penny dreadfuls; it was only under Darton that the magazine's stories became more adventurous and could compete with Boy's Own Paper and others. Authors include John Masefield." (Mike Ashley). Continues as an Annual (Dean & Sons). Aimed at children 14-16.
