Description
Godey's Lady's Book, Parts I - IX (1830-1898) provides electronic access to issues of the lady’s fashion magazine from 1830-1989. Early issues of Goody’s Lady’s Book included fashion description and plates, biographical sketches, sheet music, and articles about topics such as handcrafts, female costume, dance, and health and hygiene. Later, the periodical became an important literary magazine with book reviews, essays, poetry, and short stories by celebrated 19th century authors. Users can perform full-text searches or browse by issue. Typically, only plain text of articles, poems, and book reviews are included, while scans of the original images are provided for sheet music, advertisements, cartoons, and illustrations.
