More yellowbacks for Emory.

Emory's Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library has announced the acquisition of 4,000 yellowbacks from Cleveland's Chester Topp; these will supplement its existing yellowback collection of nearly 1,300 titles. This is welcome news for those who love Victorian sensation works because Emory will digitize them for its online catalog (which includes images); one significant piece from Topp's collection is the first paperback edition of Dracula. Sadly, however, the collection will take about three years to catalog.
