British Periodicals has been added to the database Periodicals Archive Online. It traces the development and growth of the periodical press in Britain from its origins in the seventeenth century through to the Victorian 'age of periodicals' and beyond. On completion the collection will consist of almost 500 periodical runs published from the 1680s to the 1930s.
These are some of the literary, social, political or really miscellaneous publications now available online in full-text:
The Anti-teapot Review (1864-1869)
The Athenaeum (1807-1809)
Lounger's Miscellany; or, The Lucubrations of Abel Slug, Esq. (1788-1789)
