The Arctic region has been the subject of much popular writing. This book considers nineteenth-century representations of the Arctic, and draws upon an extensive range of evidence that will allow the 'widest connections' to emerge from a 'cross-disciplinary analysis' using different methodologies and subject matter. It positions the Arctic alongside more thoroughly investigated theatres of Victorian enterprise. In the nineteenth century, most images were in the form of paintings, travel narratives, lectures given by the explorers themselves and photographs. The book explores key themes in Arctic images which impacted on subsequent representations through text, painting and photography. For much of the nineteenth century, national and regional geographical societies promoted exploration, and rewarded heroic endeavor. The book discusses images of the Arctic which originated in the activities of the geographical societies. The Times provided very low-key reporting of Arctic expeditions, as evidenced by its coverage of the missions of Sir John Franklin and James Clark Ross. However, the illustrated weekly became one of the main sources of popular representations of the Arctic. The book looks at the exhibitions of Arctic peoples, Arctic exploration and Arctic fauna in Britain. Late nineteenth-century exhibitions which featured the Arctic were essentially nostalgic in tone. The Golliwogg's Polar Adventures, published in 1900, drew on adult representations of the Arctic and will have confirmed and reinforced children's perceptions of the region. Text books, board games and novels helped to keep the subject alive among the young.

telegraph, and the increased literacy levels resulting from an improving education system, further aided this expansion. In addition the removal of stamp duty enabled a reduction in the cover price. 1 In the middle of the century publication of the illustrated weekly magazine forced certain changes on the daily newspaper. Both published news items and features about the Arctic, and in their different ways, had a considerable

made ‘on the spot’ in Italy, he later produced detailed drawings that he sent to illustrated weeklies in New York, London, and Paris. These images not only championed the Italian cause but also helped create the historical legacy of General Giuseppe Garibaldi, whose powerful and dashing presence came to embody the shared ideals of both republicanism and liberty in the United

writer, ‘omnivorous reader’ and poet. 133 He won an Illustrated Weekly of India short-story competition, which so impressed British editor Stanley Jepson that he offered Abo an internship with the magazine. Long evenings holding forth in the pub meant Abo never completed his studies at Exeter University. Instead, he moved to Karachi and eventually married Maki, the renowned Pakistani poet and academic at Karachi University whose first poems were published by Oxford University Press in 1975.

totalising ambition (expressed by Jorge Luis Borges in the epigraph to this book), any narrative about the Baroque must leave out as much as it includes. Yet a significant fact needs to be addressed. Although it had an important role in the central cultural and artistic debates analysed in the previous pages, and it was illustrated in mass visual culture up until the First World War, the Baroque is surprisingly absent from the mass visual culture produced during the Fascist ventennio . Covers of the most popular illustrated weeklies, such as the Rivista illustrata del

, including a regular series on MPs. 13 There were soon a number of imitators on the news-stands, including the Pictorial Times and the short-lived Illustrated Weekly Times . This new illustrated press brought a wider circulation to images of public figures, and brought them into the homes of the middle classes and the reading rooms of public institutions. As with the older caricatures, popular politicians featured only intermittently, usually at times of excitement. Initially at least, while an established figure such as O’Connell was deemed worthy of satire, the

half-tone blocks, and although there is a photographic record of the conflict (especially Mathew Brady’s work) it is more profitable to study the visual impact of the war artists who worked for such illustrated weeklies as Harper’s. As popular interest in the war increased, America became a nation of newspaper readers dependent upon reports from war correspondents who saw their business more in terms of morale than objectivity. Harper’s, for example, published an engraving of a totally fictitious account of Confederate soldiers bayoneting wounded Union troops, while

close friendship which was perceived between it and the illustrated press must also have contributed to the low status of battle painting. Illustrated weekly newspapers had made their appearance in the 1840s with the publication of the Illustrated London News by Herbert Ingram. The ILN soon proved enormously popular: in 1843, only a year after its inception, the circulation had reached 66,000. In

The public exposure from these two exhibitions likely secured her first magazine commission in the July 1865 issue of Once a Week (1859–80). 8 This famous illustrated weekly, published by Bradbury and Evans, drew on an extensive number of renowned artists, such as John Leech, George Du Maurier, and John Everett Millais. Hume's illustration for a story entitled ‘For the Sake of Uniformity’ by Margaret Swayne ( Figure 6.1 ) demonstrates a Pre-Raphaelite influence on her work possibly gained at Heatherley's, where key
