The Penny Magazine (Penny)

Launched, like Chambers’s Edinburgh Journal, in response to the debates around the first reform Bill, The Penny Magazine (1832-1845) was aimed at a popular audience and published and edited by Charles Knight on behalf of the Society for the Diffusion of Christian Knowledge. Priced 1d, the unstamped weekly featured wood cuts.
