Home Words for Heart and Hearth

Images from Home Words from heart and Hearth (1888), a church monthly magazine apparently intended to educate the youth of the nation in morals as well as in geography. The illustrations may have been engraved by the Dalziel brother, but I’m not certain; they don’t appear to be signed by an engraver. It’s more likely to me that “Home Words” was set up to compete with “Good Words”—a journal started by the Dalziels.
