The Lady’s Monthly Museum, or Polite Repository of Amusement and Instruction: Being an assemblage of whatever can tend to please the Fancy interest the Mind or exalt the Character of The British Fair.    By A Society of Ladies

As the new century unfolds the Monthly Museum sought to address all aspects of the fair sexes life. Within its pages you would find poetry, romance, receipts, manners, fashion and even thoughts on the politics of the day.  These wonderful reproductions cover the months of May and December from the year 1800 and are complete including their colored fashion plates.  Wonderful to read and suitable for events, historic settings etc. We hope you will enjoy this little nugget from our collection!

  • For you "history of print"  aficionados.  You will note in the May issue that the long "s" (or f shaped "s") is still being used but in December, it has been replaced by the "s" we know today!
