Summary

This is a facsimile reprint of the largest encyclopedia of the late Edwardian period, the contents of which were first published as a bi-weekly periodical and widely circulated among middle-class British families. While following the example of its illustrious Victorian predecessors, such as Beeton’s Handbooks, it tried to appeal to a more modern readership, and featured various trendy subjects for the ‘new women’ in Britain. Including photographic illustrations (some in colour) on almost every page, this reprint is also a treasure-trove of visual source material for scholars and students of British culture in this period. The reprint is based on the cumulative edition and includes a general index.
