From Victorian Literature
Title: Pleasant Hours: An Illustrated Monthly
Pleasant Hours was a monthly periodical issued by the Church of England. It was published by the National Society's Depository from 1861 until 1874 and printed by W. Clowes and Sons in London. Directed towards a juvenile audience, Pleasant Hours was intended for short, enjoyable reading and each issue averaged eleven pages. As a general rule, issues begin with a few pieces of short fiction—tales and allegories written about children, often intended to teach some kind of moral lesson. Following this, there would generally be a section of Sunday readings and religious instruction—often a biblical lesson or a sermon-like discourse. The final article would often give a detailed, scientific lesson in natural history. Also included are poems, small advice sections, and engraved illustrations. Authors are not identified.
