    Cheap, small format books, bound in straw boards covered with glazed, usually yellow, paper, yellowbacks - and the later paperbacks - were mostly fiction and designed for reading on the train. These volumes form the definitive bibliography of 26 Victorian publishers of yellowbacks and paperbacks, starting with the greatest of them, George Routledge. Each volume lists titles by publisher, with introductions, dates, details of English and American editions, a section of colour reproductions and an index.
