Description: A series of bound magazines entitled "The Quiver: an Illustrated Magazine for Sunday and General Reading" .1) yellow and brown mottled cover with red brown spine. .2)-.4) yellow and brown striped cover with brown spine.

The Quiver was started by Cassell's as a weekly paper edited by John Cassell. Its purpose was "Designed for the Defence of Biblical Truth, And the Advancement of Religion in the Homes of the People". Despite its overt religious tone the papers main attraction was serial fiction. Several authors made their name through the paper including Mrs. Henry Wood who worte "Mrs. Halliburton’s Troubles". After 1864 the religious tone of the paper lessened, especially after the death of the conservative John Cassell. They were published by John Cassell’s publishing company.
