Hardwicke s Science Gossip  Vol  20

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, Vol. 20: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature The present volume witnesses the Twentieth year of the existence of Science-Gossip - perhaps the fullest and most interesting period in the history of Natural Science. Since this journal came into existence many new methods of research have sprung up, most if not all of which have been duly chronicled in our pages. Never before was the history of discovery so complete as within the last twenty years. Are we assuming too much in stating that, notwithstanding the unpretentious character of our magazine, readers will find it difficult to obtain elsewhere than in the volumes of Science-Gossip, so perfect a scientific chronicle of the period in question? It is with no small pride the Editor feels that the present volume is the best of the series. Apart from the splendid coloured plates which the enterprise of the publishers has enabled him to present to his readers every month, the Editor was never so ably supported by contributors of such well-known scientific and literary position, as during the past year. It is equally gratifying to him to know he has the strong support of a large circle of sympathetic readers, who arc generously ready to condone faults, and to take such an individual interest in the success of this Magazine. It is with much pleasure the Editor announces that the programme for 1885 will be in no way behind that of its predecessor. Asking the kindly help of every reader and contributor to enable him to give Science-Gossip a place in every intellectual home in Great Britain, the Editor cordially wishes all, readers and contributors alike, a hearty Christmas Greeting!

Science Periodicals in Nineteenth Century Britain

Periodicals played a vital role in the developments in science and medicine that transformed nineteenth-century Britain. Proliferating from a mere handful to many hundreds of titles, they catered to audiences ranging from gentlemanly members of metropolitan societies to working-class participants in local natural history clubs. In addition to disseminating authorized scientific discovery, they fostered a sense of collective identity among their geographically dispersed and often socially disparate readers by facilitating the reciprocal interchange of ideas and information. As such, they offer privileged access into the workings of scientific communities in the period. The essays in this volume set the historical exploration of the scientific and medical periodicals of the era on a new footing, examining their precise function and role in the making of nineteenth-century science and enhancing our vision of the shifting communities and practices of science in the period. This radical rethinking of the scientific journal offers a new approach to the reconfiguration of the sciences in nineteenth-century Britain and sheds instructive light on contemporary debates about the purpose, practices, and price of scientific journals.

Hardwicke s Science Gossip  Vol  27

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, Vol. 27: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature The Editor would point out that this annual volume is distinguished even above its predecessors by original papers. Those on the British Diptera and Rhizopods alone will hereafter make the Volume for 1891 sought after. In addition, he desires to draw attention to the articles on the new aspects of Darwinism, &c., to show how much science-gossip endeavours to keep pace with the Philosophy as well as with the facts of Modern Natural Science. The Editor is fortunate in being surrounded by a zealous clientele of earnest contributors, to each of whom he owes much. The low price of the Old Monthly does not bring a fortune, but it helps science-gossip to brighten the home Of many a working-man naturalist; and there is no better tribute to 'the eagerness to receive its monthly issue, than the grumbling letters sent when the magazine appears a day or two later than usual. For twenty - seven years science-gossip has held the privilege of being the chief and most largely-circulated popular scientific magazine in Great Britain - which means in all the world! There is no better testimony to the growing love of and interest in Nature, than that such a magazine should continue to be so much required. NO effort in the Future will be spared to keep up the well-earned reputation of the Past. Notwithstanding the fact that so many paths have been well trodden, there still remain fresh fields and pastures new. Natural Science, like Astronomy, may be explored, but cannot be exhausted.

Hardwicke s Science Gossip  1889  Vol  25

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, 1889, Vol. 25: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature What an enormous advance Science has made within the period comprehended by the lifetime of science-gossip! There is, perhaps, no previous quarter of a century equal to it in the whole history of scientific research. Our past volumes record this progress - all the more faithfully because it was recorded almost unconscious of the fact that an act of evolution was going on. Perhaps one of the most striking features in the scientific history Of the last twenty-five years is its increased democratic character. It belongs to the people, without any reference to rank, wealth, or influence. For years, in our columns, peers and peasants have discussed natural history subjects on common and equal ground. Science has sprung from the people, and belongs to the people. Apart from its increasing national economic importance, it is one of their chief intellectual delights. For one person who cared enough about the multitudinous objects of nature to enquire into them a quarter of a century ago, there are at least ten now.

Hardwicke s Science Gossip  Vol  24

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, Vol. 24: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature Twenty-Four years have elapsed since this Magazine was founded by the genial publisher whose name it still bears. It is a long life for so popular a serial as Science-Gossip, but has there been any flagging in its vitality? Many honoured names, both in amateur and professional science, have helped to build up its worldwide reputation. It has been the ladder by which many distinguished men have climbed to fame. Scores of others who have helped our Magazine have passed away. Though they rest from their labours, their works follow them; and not a few of their articles are sought out in back volumes for the wisdom and experience they generously placed at the service of the public, and especially at that of the young naturalists who were to succeed them. In spite of the little bickerings and breezes we experience, even in scientific circles - the accumulated heritage from ancestors who knew not science - is there a single profession or calling in which men are so willing to help each other as in natural science? Our columns bear evidence to the prompt readiness with which young beginners, and even more advanced students, obtain assistance as soon as they ask for it. The spheres of science are ever widening, like those of a disturbed lake. There is little fear the function of Science-Gossip will die out for lack of fresh information. Every new discovery opens out fresh vistas, and calls forth additional comment and criticism. We claim that, from the popular point of view, our twenty-four volumes give as complete and even a more continuous History of recent Science than can be found anywhere else.

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, Vol. 18: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature HE necessity to write a few lines by way of Preface to the present volume reminds us that science-gossip has been in existence for eighteen years. That period includes, perhaps, the most important epoch in the history of Natural Science. The doctrines of Evolution and Natural Selection have practically arisen, so as to influence scientific research in every direction, within the space of time our journal has been in existence. Zoology, Botany, Geology, and Microscopy especially have assumed new aspects, or started on fresh lines of inquiry. And, notwithstanding the immense number of new subjects which have sprung up, it cannot be denied that all tend to unify our knowledge of Nature, rather than to perplex us. We flatter ourselves that the volumes of science-gossip which have appeared during this historical period will be found well to the front in recording new discoveries, in popularising them, as well as partaking in the active scientific work of the time.

Excerpt from Hardwicke's Science-Gossip, 1874: An Illustrated Medium of Interchange and Gossip for Students and Lovers of Nature His temper is peculiar, and he is easily offended. If I presume to keep him in a cage for a longer time than he approves, when I again let him out he will run away and hide himself, and refuse to sing-or speak for some hours. On one occasion, I took him to another house, intending him to show off his accomplishments. He behaved like a wild bird, refused to be caught, and remained at the top of the room, on a curtain-pole. He was only at last driven into his cage by hunger, when the door was rapidly shut upon him. On his return to his home, though at once set at liberty in his own room, he refused to speak, sing, or take any notice of his mistress for nearly a fortnight - K. H.
