Pleasure (UK) [1893]

Total Issues: 9

"This was issued monthly price 1d and was subtitled "The Catholic Boys Journal", a paper no doubt issued for Catholic boys of London. This paper however contained some very interesting stories of pirates and school life, although its editorial contents were of a religious nature. After No.4, dated June 1893, the sub-title was dropped and replaced by "Monthly Journal", the change made perhaps to increase circulation. In issue No.8 the Editor made the announcement that owing to financial reasons he had sold the copyright of the paper to The Arundel Printing and Publishing Co., Strand, and that from next week that company would produce that paper. The new publishers most certainly made a bigger mess that this editor, as only one issue appeared." (W. O. G. Lofts) The latter issue was sub-titled "The Boys Halfholiday Journal". Large-size with 16 pages. Was reputedly sub-edited by William Clarke Russell, the famous writer of sea stories. The lead story was entitled "The Adventures of a Young Stowaway" by Mrs. George Corbett.
