The Leisure Hour
A Family Journal of Instruction and Recreation

6 December 1862
London

Fascinating journal - More than a century and a half old!

Contents include:
A Trip by Rail from Melbourne to Ballarat in 1862
The Census Office
George Peabody - American-British entrepreneur and philanthropist
Men I Have Known
The Night Sky of the South
The Rival Heirs
Fires
- and more

Published by the Religious Tract Society. The journal contained very little religious material; it instead delivered its moral mission through essays on wholesome recreations, and poetry, puzzles and illustrations, fictional stories and biographies of the virtuous and wise. Indeed, the Leisure Hour reflected and helped define the broader literary genres that were considered appropriate for achieving a serial with a moral tone.

25 cm x 17 cm
16 pages

Good condition. Minor roughness at spine from being bound with other issues.
