Spanish Periodicals and Newspapers: Women's Magazine Digital Collection
"In the early 1970s, the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut, USA, acquired an incredible collection of Spanish Periodicals and Newspapers collected by the famous bibliophile, Juan Perez de Guzman y Boza, the Duque de T' Serclaes. [...] This ... collection reflects the complex history of Spain through periodicals and newspapers dating from the 18th-20th centuries, with the bulk of the collection dating from the 19th century. "Of significant interest is the wide selection of women's magazines written by men to appeal to an elite female audience. The collection is full of things such as short historical stories, poems, good advice for both men and women about the proper behavior of ladies at any age, beautiful colored and engraved images with the latest news of Paris fashion, music sheets of polkas and other music specifically composed for the magazines, and patterns for needlework, to name only a few. These magazines are an amazing window to understand the social dimensions of women in 19th century Spain...." "...The Dodd Research Center, in collaboration with the UConn Libraries, [...] have created in-house this digital collection, to provide electronic access to researchers around the world.[...]. The digital copies are available through the Internet Archive and the UConn Digital Collections site [...] in ... different formats and the text is searchable." [ Pagebreak ]
