J. Don Vann and Rosemary T. VanArsdel, eds., Victorian Periodicals and Victorian Society (U of Toronto P, 1994, paper reprint 1995), 370 pp., $35 paper; and J. Don Vann and Rosemary T. VanArsdel, eds., Periodicals of Queen Victoria's Empire: An Exploration (U of Toronto P, 1996), 371 pp., $80. Thirty years ago, the founders of the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals sought to gain bibliographical control of the vast array of basically unknown periodicals by locating runs of them, describing their editorial bias and content, identifying publisher and editorial staff, and making the information available to Victorianists and specialists interested in the history of their disciplines. The four volumes edited by J. Don Vann and Rosemary T. VanArsdel chart the progress toward this goal in their excellent guides, which illustrate the tremendous strides made by scholars in the intervening years. Given the huge quantity of periodicals and the unavailability of many, this accomplishment is extraordinary. The expansion in the field is exemplified by both volumes under consideration here, but most obviously in the second, which was originally to have been a chapter in the first; however, the existence of sufficient valuable research on periodicals in specific geographical areas of the Empire justified a separate compilation of comparable size and value.
