Novelty fair: British visual culture between Chartism and the Great Exhibition, Briggs, Jo
7 Briggs, Jo Novelty fair: British visual culture between Chartism and the Great Exhibition
Manchester, United Kingdom Manchester University Press, 2016 0719089646 / 9780719089640 First Edition Hardcover As New Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition hardcover copy, with unbruised tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear; not ex-library, with neither underlining nor highlighting anywhere. From the publisher's blurb, "Novelty Fair: Visual Culture Between Chartism and the Great Exhibition examines mid-nineteenth-century people, things and places generally understood to be discrete and unrelated: urban fairs and the Great Exhibition, daguerreotypes and ballads, satirical shilling books and government-backed design reform, blackface performers and middle-class paterfamilias. A range of new and neglected sources, drawn mainly from popular culture are used to inform the discussion. The pivotal years between Chartism and the Great Exhibition emerge as far more contested than has previously been recognised and bourgeois forms and strategies are revealed as being under stress in a period that has been seen as a triumphant one for that class. Novelty fair will be of special interest to historians of Chartism, cultural historians interested in the Great Exhibition and design reform and those in the field of Victorian studies, cultural studies and visual culture more generally." xiii + 176 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
