19th Century Yellowbacks
Like Pulp Fiction? How about 19th century English Pulp Fiction?
Emory University has placed over 1200 copies of Yellowbacks on the Internet in PDF format.
Yellowbacks were cheap, 19th century British literature sold at railway book stalls, with colorful, sensational covers to attract buyers. While some were well-known books such as “Sense and Sensibility,” many of the yellowbacks were obscure titles by authors unknown nowadays. “They were the equivalent of a popular novel you’d read on a plane today,” says David Faulds, MARBL’s rare book librarian.
Files are available starting here.
