New Content in British Periodicals

Cornell Library access to the British Periodicals database now includes the magazines collectively known as the “Great Eight” during the late 1800s and early 1900s:

The Illustrated War News
The Sketch
The Sphere
The Tatler
The Graphic
The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News
The Bystander

Most if not all of these were heavily illustrated publications, so the visual content in particular is quite rich. This group of publications should be an especially welcome addition for those studying 19th and 20th century popular culture and the arts in the UK.
