First edition limited to 500 copies. The fifth volume in what will be a multi-volume bibliography of over 25 publishers of Victorian yellowbacks and paperbacks is devoted to the publishing houses of Macmillan and Co. and Smith, Elder and Co. An expansion of the work of Michael Sadleir and the catalogue of the Robert Wolf collection, this series represents the first comprehensive study of this important literary genre. Arranged chronologically by publisher, each numbered entry includes information on the first English and first American editions along with other important editions. Title, author and series indices and a section of 32 color illustrations of book covers add to the value of this reference.
