Contributions to Papers, Magazines, & Various Journals
The major part of Rands' output consists of contributions to a wide variety of papers, journals & magazines. There is perhaps no better illustration of his extraordinary versatility & fecundity than his monthly supplement to The Saturday Journal, 1874-5. ("Being Notes, Literary, Social & Scientific, for Readers out of the Way, and Others"). In eight pages of plain text and approximately 20,000 words, he reviewed topical matters in Science, Arts, Books & "Incidental Topics" with extraordinary erudition.
The originator of The Boy's Own Paper, he was also a regular contributor to the following, (and probably others) invariably under pseudonyms, of which more than thirty have been discovered:
- The Spectator
- Daily News
- Illustrated London News
- Cornhill Magazine
- Tait's Edinburgh Magazine
- Strachan's Annual
- The Contemporary Review
- Good Words
- Good Words for the Young
