69 pages. Illustrated. "For many of the titles, nothing remains but the covers. // Yet even today, these remain fascinating in themselves. A generation of readers is reflected in their dresses, styles, and their settings. They can still make us laugh and charm us with colour and vivacity and with decorative qualities - more permanent than their contents, which have lasted longer than their illustrators dared to hope, and far longer than the twenty or thirty years of Chatto's 6d. Series. ' - from the Introduction.; 4to. N° de ref. de la librería 002844

Acerca de


1985 Chatto Windus hardcover, British import. In the 1890's, paperback sixpenny "dreadfuls"-or wonderfuls-so named due to the colorful cover illustrations-appeared in Britain and its empire.Those who could afford expensive hardcovers disdained them-"'.to read a novel before luncheon was one of the gravest sins a gentlewoman could commit...'" But the cheap editions of authors Wilkie Collins, Mark Twain, Thomas Hardy, Ouida, Emile Zola and Walter Besant found favor w/ the newly literate British working class. Each title in collection has background material/ synopsis/author bios plus a reproduction of the bright, brash cover.
