Tiny Library

Total Issues: 63

"This was a weekly paper, very small in size, in fact I think one of the smallest boys' papers to have ever been issued. Its contents were of the type one would find in the early Boy's Own Paper. I should also think it the forerunner of the Libraries, as its small handy size was no doubt popular, it had a longer run than most of its companion papers issued in the same period." (W.O.G. Lofts)

Issue Checklist


Total Issues: 5107 (to 1984)

The weekly which began a revolution in British popular journalism, leading to near-imitators such as Alfred Harmsworth's Answers and exerting a longer-term influence on the cheap newspapers of the 20th century. Primarily a gathering of "human interest" snippets and other useless knowledge, it also featured short stories and even full-length fiction serials such as Grant Allen's "What's Bred in the Bone" (1891) and Rider Haggard's "The People of the Mist" (1893 - 1894). In 1967 it ran a short sf series, "Into the Fantastic," with stories by Tom Boardman, William F. Nolan, Chris Priest, Isaac Asimov, Frederic Brown, William F. Temple, David Rome, etc. Current circulation 150,000.
