Chatterbox was one of the most popular English publications for children. It was first published December 1, 1866. The last edition was in 1955. Chatterbox was created by the Rev. John Erskine Clarke (1827-1920) of Derby. He also served as the Editor until 1902. Unlike the Boy's Own and Girl's Own, the other best remembered English children's publications, Chatterbox was designed to appeal to boys and girls. Clarke conceived Chatterbox as a weekly paper for children. Given the relative cost of books and magazines in the 19th century, many readers saved the weekly issues and some even had them bound. Chatterbox was primarily a story annual and the content varied over time. There were, however, puzzles, poems, interesting facts, and a variety of interesting activities. Chatterbox was lavisgly illustrated, especially after the turn of the 20th century when the technology for lothographic printing improved.
Publishing History

We have varying reports as to the illustrayions in Chatterbox. One report indicates that it was lavishly illustrated, especially after the turn of the 20th century when the technology for lothographic printing improved. Illustrations in the 19th century were mostly black and white line drawings. Normally the illustrators were not identified. This was not only in Chatterbox, but in most of the other annuals as well. The illustrations normally depict children from comfortable middle class families and do not refflect a range of childhood experiences. Working class children were rarely depicted.
