Once A Week (1859-1880) was an English weekly illustrated literary magazine published by Bradbury and Evans. The magazine's main achievement was to provide an outlet for an innovative group of illustrators in the 1860s. It was founded in consequence of a dispute between Bradbury and Evans and Charles Dickens. Bradbury and Evans had been Dickens' publisher since 1844, including publishing his magazine Household Words. In 1859, they refused to carry an advertisement by Dickens explaining why he had broken with Mrs. Dickens. Consequently, Dickens stopped work on Household Words and founded a new magazine, All The Year Round, which he decided would be editorially independent of any publisher. Bradbury and Evans responded by founding Once A Week. This rare book was produced from a digital copy held by the University of Michigan Library that can be downloaded from Google Books.
