In the early 19th century, publishing in Britain was restricted by cumbersome printing technology and prohibitive taxes on printed pages. When the Stamp Tax was repealed in 1855, removing the levy of one penny per full printed page, there was an explosion of newspapers and periodicals throughout the country. They covered many subjects, from fashion and art to industry. By the late 19th century, there were over 400 periodicals devoted to agriculture alone, of which the Stock Keeper and Fancier's Chronicle was one. Agriculture produced about a third of the national income at the time.
