What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Illustrated, Uncommon
The Cornhill Magazine was a monthly Victorian magazine and literary journal, edited by William Makepeace Thackeray. Under his editorial guidance the paper's large circulation peaked around 110,000. In 1871, the editing was taken over by Leslie Stephens. The first issue appeared in 1860, with a selection of articles on diverse subjects and serialisations of new novels.
The present volume features one hundred engravings from drawings on wood which illustrated the magazine to authors such as George du Maurier and W. M. Thackeray. Engraved by the brothers Dalziel, W. J. Linton, and Joseph Swain.
