A popular pastime from the 19th century

Solving crossword puzzles has been a popular recreational activity for those who love to work with words ever since they first began to appear in periodicals and in various books for children during the late 1800s. An early example of such an early crossword puzzle is the one that appeared in Il Secolo Illustrato della Domenica, an Italian periodical, in 1890. However, the crossword as we know it did not start until 1913, when the English journalist Arthur Wayne published one in the New York World that embodied most of its present features. By 1921, these puzzles had become so widespread that the New York Public Library stated: “”The latest craze to strike libraries is the crossword puzzle.” Librarians even complained that those who were using the reference books to solve crosswords drove away students and others who needed them for more serious purposes!
