General Search
 
 

Using keywords, you may search all of the marked-up documents on The Yellow Nineties Online. At present these include The Pagan Review (1 vol) and The Yellow Book (13 vols), associated paratextual material, biographical essays and portraits of people associated with the 1890s and its periodicals, and scholarly essays. A General Search will return both visual and verbal material.

Search Advice: The General Search uses keywords to return verbal texts in which that specific word is used, and images whose mark-up or verbal description includes either that specific word, or a larger category in the Iconographical Index we have used to tag visual material. For example, a search for "bird" will return only "bird" in the verbal texts, but will include all images we have listed under the category "bird" in the visual texts: peacocks, swans, swallows, doves, and so on.

Iconographical Categories are: Period (date, era); Geography (physical location); Setting (interior/exterior, natural/built environment, elements, temporality); People (figures, relations, clothing); Objects (artifacts, furnishings, tools and implements, plants and animals, food and drink); Transcription (of text in or accompanying image).

Images are also marked up by author, title, engraver, genre, medium (where known), and periodical location and date.

The General Search will return only content that contains the keyword. It does not return content related to abstract concepts such as "aestheticism." If you wish to refine your search, please go to Advanced Search.

Biography
James Ashcroft Noble
Kedrun Laurie .
James Ashcroft Noble spent most of his working life in the north-west of England and did not move to London until his late thirties. The two papers that he published in The Yellow Book the year before his death, “Mr. Stevenson’s Forerunner” (Vol. IV, January 1895), about the Scottish poet Alexander Smith, and “The Phantasies of Philarete” (Vol. V, April 1895), a tale of New Grub Street, are not of a nature to excite attention or controversy.

Volume 4
The Yellow Book - 1890s Review
From The Bookman: Rev. of The Yellow Book 4
Unattributed .
There is greater average merit in the latest number of the Yellow Book than in the former ones, but there is no one feature that stands out prominently, unless it be the fearsome picture of Mr. George Moore, which is calculated to justify all the obstinate prejudices of librarians.

The Yellow Book - 1890s Review
From The Dial: The Fifth Issue of the "Yellow Book"
Unattributed .
"The Yellow Book" has been made the victim of a good deal of abuse on account of its decadent tendencies in both literature and art, the abuse, although extravagant, not being entirely unwarranted.

The Phantasies of Philarete
James Ashcroft Noble .
FOR quite a month or two it was noticed at the Shandy Club that a certain change had passed over Hartmann West. West was rather a notability at the club, though he was, com- paratively speaking, a young member.

BLACKIE was buried yesterday. At the High Kirk, as he would have wished it, his old friend and comrade Walter Smith shared the service with Cameron Lees, Flint and the Moderator :-Free Kirk and Auld Kirk uniting in the historic Kirk, as this merged into that communion of multitudinous sorrow, that reverent throng amid which the broad Cathedral was but the sounding chancel, the square and street the silent transept and nave.

The Yellow Book - 1890s Review
From The Bookman: Rev. of The Yellow Book 5
Unattributed .
Certain occurrences in London of recent date, which it is not necessary to mention more specifically, have had a very marked influence upon the tone of the present number of the Yellow Book. It is not only free from any suspicion of moral slime, but, in its literary features at least, appears to have abandoned its former eccentricity.
