It is impossible to overestimate the importance of the Victorian printing press. At every level of society there was an unprecedented demand for newspapers, penny novels, serials and periodicals. There was a thirst for knowledge created by the increasing literate proportion of the population, the growth of towns and cities and the increasing amount of leisure time available to the working man.
