The Lady’s Magazine

The Lady’s Magazine or, Entertaining Companion for the Fair Sex, Appropriated solely to their Use and Amusement. Vol.XXI

The essential companion for the Georgian and Regency lady, The Lady’s Magazine, with its lavish illustrations and wide ranging features from the contemporary world of fashion, literature, music, stage and high society, promoted to its readers a world of contentment, decorum and moral fortitude within the domestic sphere. It was not without its innovations however, as Dr Cook, in his hugely popular column, regularly tackled such risqué and scandalous subjects as menstrual pain, breastfeeding and even, sexuality.

Printed for G.G.J and J. Robinson, 1790. Layton Collection 3578
