This periodical is most well known for its fashion plates, but, while significant, they were by no means the primary focus of the publication. The full title was The Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics. Each issue included reports on all of these subjects, plus many other articles covering a wide variety of topics, with a heavy emphasis on history, science, and technology.
