The following sets will be purchased this fiscal year:

  • Dancing Times, 1910-1951

    The longest-running and most important dance periodical in Britain, and forms a unique chronicle of 20th century classical and non-classical dance. Interviews with, and reviews and articles on, performers, choreographers, composers, designers and performances in London, Paris, Moscow, New York and elsewhere have been regular features of the journal since its inception.

  • Gartenlaube

    Among the most famous periodicals in the history of the German press. Established in the mid-19th century - in the "post-March" period marked by the disappointment and depoliticization that followed the Revolution of 1848/49 -, it was successful up until 1944. Its publisher, Ernst Keil, developed a prototype that was soon considered to be the classic family magazine during the 19th century, offering novels and tales, reports and essays on paedagogical and medical topics, and thus functioning as an "aide" and "friend of the family". The magazine clearly represents a comprehensive and essential source of material interesting for the study of cultural history. This purchase will solidify the deteriorating hard copy scattered holdings.

  • Poona Observer and Civil & Military Journal, February 1876 - December 1906

    As one voting library expressed, this title is not presently held in the United States. It covers a critical period in India's history, post Sepoy Mutiny and covers things of interest to researchers in Pre World War-I thinking in British India and the thinking behind the recruitments of Indians in the Military.

  • Sacramento Bee, 1900-1919

    This purchase will support faculty research from libraries outside California where it is essential for large runs to be borrowed for long periods of time. The run will also add to CRL’s holdings for this title or its variant titles.

  • Sound Toll Registers. Unit 1: 1497-1599

    This set details the shipping activities in the sound separating Denmark from Sweden, which is one of the busiest commercial waterways in the world. It is an invaluable repository of primary source materials on European maritime commerce and offers detailed insights into the flow of goods and services from west to east (and back again). This is a key source for the study of economic history and the development of national and international trade, and should be made available for consortial use by scholars in the United States.
