Charm, The (periodical)


The Charm: A book for boys and girls Edited by J. C. was published by Addey and ran 1853-55. It was described by CMY in a letter to Macmillan as ‘a Child’s Magazine . . . which was so contrived that each subject occupied a sheet in each monthly part, and so when bound up all the history could be put together - all the science - all the story. But such a procrustean bed must have been misery to editor and contributors and I fancy was much aided by unlimited woodcut power.’
