[picture: Front Cover, The Leisure Hour]

Images and extracts from “The Leisure Hour” collected edition of 1896. It was published in London, where copyright lasts until 70 years after a person’s death. There is no editor credited, and usually no artist or engraver, but it’s not inconceivable that a twenty-year-old could have worked on this edition and lived to be over seventy. I have marked the images as being for non-commercial use only, but if you determine that an image is out of copyright, go ahead and use it as you will.
