A hundred years on, the distinguished scholar Leonee Ormond has written an illuminating biography, using Sambourne's own copious records preserved in his house at 18 Stafford Terrace, Kensington, London—now a museum.

The Victorian period witnessed the beginning of a debate on the status of animals that continues today. This volume explicitly acknowledges the way twenty-first-century deliberations about animal rights and the fact of past and prospective animal extinction haunt the discussion of the Victorians' obsession with animals. Combining close attention to historical detail with a sophisticated analytical framework, the contributors examine the various forms of human dominion over animals, including imaginative possession of animals in the realms of fiction, performance, and the visual arts, as well as physical control as manifest in hunting, killing, vivisection and zookeeping. The diverse range of topics, analyzed from a contemporary perspective, makes the volume a significant contribution to Victorian studies. The conclusion by Harriet Ritvo, the pre-eminent authority in the field of Victorian/animal studies, provides valuable insight into the burgeoning field of animal studies and points toward future studies of animals in the Victorian period.

With contributors drawn from a broad range of disciplines, The Modern Period Room brings together a carefully selected collection of essays to consider the interiors of the modern era and their more recent reconstructions from a variety of different viewpoints. Contributions from leading design historians, architects and curators of the history of the domestic interior in the UK engage with the issues and conventions surrounding the modern period room to expose the conflicting tensions that lie beneath the conceptual and physical strategy of the modern period room's representational technique. Exploring themes and examples by prestigious architects, such as Ernö Goldfinger, Truus Schroeder and Gerrit Rietveld, the authors reveal the specific coding of presented interior spaces. This illustrated new take on the historiography of twentieth century show interiors enables historians and theorists of architecture, design and social history to investigate the contexts in which this representational device has been used.

Jeremy Paxman's unique portrait of the Victorian age takes readers on an exciting journey through the birth of modern Britain. Using the paintings of the era as a starting point, he tells us stories of urban life, family, faith, industry and empire that helped define the Victorian spirit and imagination. To Paxman, these paintings were the television of their day, and his exploration of Victorian art and society shows how these artists were chronicling a world changing before their eyes. This enthralling history is Paxman at his best - opinionated, informed, witty, surprising - and a glorious reminder of how the Victorians made us who we are today.

From the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century, hundreds of British women wrote about and drew from nature. Some—like the beloved children's author Beatrix Potter, who produced natural history about hedgehogs as well as fiction about rabbits—are still familiar today. But others have all but disappeared from view. Barbara Gates recovers these lost works and prints them alongside little-known pieces by more famous authors, like Potter's field notes on hedgehogs, reminding us of better known stories that help set the others in context. The works contained in this volume are as varied as the women who produced them. They include passionate essays on the protection of animals, vivid accounts of travel and adventure from the English seashore to the Indian Alps, poetry and fiction, and marvelous tales of nature for children. Special features of the book include a detailed chronology placing each selection in its historical and literary context; biographical sketches of each author's life and works; a comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary literature; and over sixty illustrations. An ideal introduction to women's powerful and diverse responses to the natural world, In Nature's Name will be treasured by anyone interested in natural history, women, or Victorian and Edwardian Britain.

"We are not amused." Wie kein anderer Satz steht dieses Zitat für das Bild, das wir heute von Queen Victoria haben. In unserer Vorstellung ist sie eine mürrische, pummelige, alte Dame. Aber wie wurde die Königin zu ihrer Zeit gesehen? Melanie Thomas untersucht die zeitgenössische Darstellung Victorias in den Karikaturen des berühmtesten englischen Satiremagazins des 19. Jahrhunderts, dem "Punch". Anhand von über 70 ausgewählten Karikaturen zeichnet sie ein Bild der Monarchin im Spiegel der Satiriker. Es werden sämtliche Phasen ihres wechselreichen Lebens, ob privat oder öffentlich, behandelt: Wir sehen die naive 18 Jahre junge Königin, das mächtige Staatsoberhaupt des Empires, die Ehefrau und Mutter von neun Kindern, die ewige Witwe, die Kaiserin von Indien und die Großmutter Europas. Die Autorin fragt: Wie sahen die Karikaturisten die Frau, die über 63 Jahre lang regierte und zeitlebens den Spagat vollzog, gleichzeitig Herrscherin des britischen Weltreichs und viktorianische Frau zu sein? Wurde die Königin verspottet und lächerlich gemacht oder hofiert und gefeiert? Bildlich gesprochen: "Taking a Punch at the Queen?"
