A ‘knowledge’ magazine, illustrated with woodcuts. In the early 1830’s a distinct category called ‘knowledge magazines’ briefly appeared, of which this is the earliest collected and a typical example. They were generally cheaply printed and consisted of short miscellaneous, encyclopedia-style articles, illustrated with woodcuts.
