Content Roundup – Second week – May 2013

This week sees a host of new Story Paper newspaper issues – including an issue with a Nellie Bly story from the 1800s. Follow along with the adventures – in Spanish of the Black Pirate! In addition to these compelling stories, two popular non-fiction titles – one on stage magic and the other on social entertaining give glimpses of the mores and customs at the turn of the century. The secondary Scholarship segment of the Dime Novel collection was initiated with several bibliographies. As well, we are progressing into the war years for coverage of graduate Villanova theses; it is interesting to survey the topics that were being researched in these days. Enjoy the May flowers and read along with:
