Added Value: Things found in books part sixteen

Not the most attractive item I've found but one of the more interesting ones with a wealth of information about three early magazines.  Illustrations and short description of each magazine with more details on the back.

The Quiver; the leading magazine for Sunday reading. Many well-known divines, essayists, and novelists contribute to its pages, which are illustrated by the best artists.

Cassell’s magazine; for the household. Articles on household management, health and health resorts, sketches of North-country character, country nooks and city corners for holiday travellers, commerce, gardening, needle-work, painting, and dainty dishes for the family table!

Little folks; for all girls and boys. Now recognised as the best magazine for girls and boys, as well as for the very little folks. For girls there is always very much of interest, fancy needle-work, music and other matters particularly suitable to girls whilst boys will find, stories of heroism and adventure, curious discoveries and inventions, and many articles of character.

Found in Modes of Production of Victorian Novels by N. N. Feltes published by the University of Chicago Press.

Modes of production is now sold, thank you for your interest.
Have you ever found a forgotten bookmark? 


  1. This is more like the stuff I used to find in the old German girls' novels I used to buy from Germany for my dissertation. I never found anything fun, but did find interesting things. I also used to love to read the inscriptions since most were gifts. Thanks for sharing all of you finds with your readers, I, for one, enjoy them very much

    I love inscriptions too and plan to start sharing some of those at a later date. I'm glad you are enjoying my 'finds'
    Thanks for calling in.

  3. A find of history too. I like it.

    I haven't found a forgotten bookmark but I once found a strange note inside a book which I have always wondered about. I've even contemplated writing a blog post about it, I always thought it would be a good basis for a movie idea...

    Once again, great post Barbara Anne!

    I'm intrigued! You should write that post - I for one would love to read it.

    I like my first name a lot better when my second name is attached to it - perhaps I should start using it?

    Barbara Anne

    I like your name with the two together as well. My middle name is actually Ann too but without the e.

    Yep, you've inspired me to write the blog post so I've put it on the list and hopefully I'll get it up soon! I get so many ideas sometimes that I have to write them all down on a list so I don't forget!

    Hello Megan Ann!
    I've got one of those lists - trouble is it keeps getting longer. I'm looking forward to your post.


I really appreciate your comment. Thank you!
Barbara xx
