The English Cabinet

Newspapers and periodicals

The bibliographical details of 45 newspaper and periodical titles from the ‘English Cabinet’ were transcribed from duplicate index cards copied in 1975 and a published bibliography checked against the original cards. This is the only digitised listing of the chartist and radical English-language books, pamphlets and periodicals collected by Riazanov and his colleagues. The period covered is principally the nineteenth century, although titles from the late eighteenth and early twentieth centuries are also included. However, the index cards accessed in 1975 did not include the IML’s Robert Owen collection and only represent a small section of the entire ‘English Cabinet’. The complete collection can be searched online at the The Centre of Social and Political History.
