"An important primary source collection and an outstanding bibliographical resource for Victorian periodical research. The former comes in the form of a three-volume set edited by Andrew King and John Plunkett, Popular Print Media 1820–1900. Though pricey, this is an excellent resource for accessing reprints of key texts on nineteenth-century journalism, readership, and the periodical press. Among the pieces reproduced are works by William Hazlitt and James Mill, the famous mid-century appraisals of popular literature and mass audiences by Margaret Oliphant and Wilkie Collins, and late-century pieces representing the fierce debate over the New Journalism techniques pioneered by the likes of T.P. O’Connor and W.T. Stead. The introduction by King and Plunkett provides a helpful entry into the subject."
