The Boy's Own Paper was first issued in January 1879, a reputable, informative and entertaining publication to counteract the lurid 'penny dreadfuls' of the day. Publication continued until 1966, and its last Editor is the author of this history. In a narrative full of illustrations from almost 100 years of issues, he traces its evolution from the bracing advice-giver of the Victorian era to the promoter of practical and technical know-how in its final decades. Bears old cover price.
