The Wide World Magazine

The Wide World Magazine was a British monthly illustrated publication which ran from April 1898 to December 1965.
It described itself as “an illustrated magazine of true narrative” and each month purported to feature “true-life” adventure and travel stories gathered from around the world. Its motto was “Truth is stranger than fiction”. The stories and illustrations are very much of their time.

Stapled paperback booklets with colour covers and B&W inner pages.
Heavily subsidised by adverts (which are interesting in themselves as mirrors of the period).
Issued in volumes: each volume consisted of 6 issues.
