Abstract

The Englishwoman’s Domestic Magazine (1852-1879) was published by Samuel Beeton. Its aim was to become ‘an encouraging friend to those of our country women already initiated in the secret of making ‘‘home happy.”’ Between 1859 and 1861, the journal included regular supplements by Samuel’s wife Isabella, and these became the basis for her 1861 Book of Household Management. A conservative publication, themagazine featured domestic advice and fashion tips for the middle-class woman. The monthly publication also included ‘The Englishwoman’s Conversazione’, an advice section which attracted some notoriety in the 1860s through a series of letters relating to the tight-lacing of corsets and the disciplining of young women.
