- During the Long Nineteenth Century British periodicals of all genres issued so-called "supplements" various now disregarded addenda (e.g. gifts, special editions on topical issues, advertisement papers) that can relate to the supplemented periodical in several meaningful ways. We study those functions, emphasizing the diversity of these documents and the aspired market position of the periodicals with which they were issued.
