Tit-Bits was a Britsh weekly magazine. The first issue was on October 22, 1881, and the final issue was on July 18, 1984.
“Tit-bits” is like the British way of saying “tidbits” in America.
The magazine was a mass-circulation commercial publication on cheap newsprint which soon reached sales of between 400,000 and 600,000. Like a mini-encyclopedia, it presented a diverse range of tit-bits of information in an easy-to-read format, with the emphasis on human interest stories concentrating on drama and sensation.
