This series captures the British Library's holdings of all newspaper
and periodical titles published in France during the revolution
of 1848. Coverage is continued through the coup d'état in
1851 to the establishment of the Second Empire in 1852.
Some titles represent continuations of national dailies and weeklies
which published through the unrest, offering a base-note of
news coverage from experienced journalists, while many others
sprang up in direct response to the political situation, and witnessed
events from very partisan perspectives. George Sand is
just one of the famous literary voices here commenting on the
unrest and uncertainty.
While the revolutions are second only to World War II as
research areas in French History, specific titles also address those
studying many aspects of 19th-century French life, including:
women's periodicals, literary, musical, theatre and opera reviews;
medical and trade titles; regional papers; and newsletters. There
is also a strong strain of illustrated satirical and humorous titles,
and pamphlets held at the main British Library rather than
being classed as newspapers.
