The sensational world of Victorian yellowbacks.

The Lazy Scholar peruses some lurid Victorian yellowbacks for our edification (see also some text on and images from these editions designed for the railway reader from a British Library exhibition on Victorian books).

About the image: Cover of Alice Wilde, the Raftsman's Daughter, by Metta Fuller Victor (aka mystery author Seeley Regester). Emory Digital Library.
