Abstract

Abstract:

In 1881, the first issue of George Newnes's journal Tit-Bits declared itself "openly and avowedly" committed to a program of radical extraction. Whereas other journals might reprint the odd piece from their competitors, Tit-Bits would contain nothing that had not already appeared elsewhere. Yet over the course of the 1880s Tit-Bits gradually began printing ever-larger quantities of original material. This essay draws attention to the various personal, legal, and social factors that enabled this transformation.
