Another popular scientific publication, the Magazine of Science, and School of Arts (1840-1849) declared on its frontispiece that it ‘intended to illustrate the most useful, novel and interesting parts of natural history and experimental philosophy, artistical processes, ornamental manufactures, and the arts of life’. While it included some wood engravings, much of the journal was text. Articles included features on lathes, oil paintings, sculptors’ instruments, and insect coloration. It was superseded in 1850 by the Magazine of Science and Artists and Artists, Architects, and Builders Journal.
