History: The Religious Tract Society was founded in England in 1799 and was a major publisher of Christian literature. The literature included many publications aimed at women, children and the poor and included Sunday at Home, Woman's Magazine, Boy's Own Paper, Girl's Own Paper and Great Thoughts. The literature was intended for evangelism. In 1935, the Religious Tract Society merged with the Christian Literature Society for India and Africa to form the United Society for Christian Literature.
