Monthly Illustrator

True to its name, the main focus of this zine was art: many reproductions of paintings, sketches, and photographic studies. Articles on artists, art movements, decorative arts. However, also features travelogues, "Mysteries of a Sultan's Palace", etc.

As to fiction: Most obviously, the issues of 1895 are busy serializing "Victor Hugo's JEAN VALJEAN (condensed by Ernest Ingersoll)". But there are also many poems and other pieces of fiction, including for example another serial THE RECTOR OF RADBOURNE by Henry Mann the educator?. Even the shrunken issue for Dcemember 1896 has not eliminated the fiction, but includes at least "The Feminine Monde" by Edwardes sic Dawson.

The Monthly Magazine

I'm not aware this published much fiction, certainly not in its early days, though probably after 1826 when it adopted the sub-title "British register of literature, science and belles lettres." It serialized novels by G. W. M. Reynolds in the 1830s. Its title explains why we have a "New" Monthly Magazine so early.
