Item Description: Jupiter Books, 1977. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good +. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good +. First Edition. This 125 page book details the history of mid-nineteenth century "penny dreadfuls" which provided escapist reading for working class youth. "Some of the lurid tales issued in penny parts followed in the tradition of the Gothic romances of the eighteenth century; others were inspired by gallows literature - the broadsheets and the spurious criminal biographies and death-cell confessions that were hawked around at public hangings. The 'dreadfuls' were published strictly for profit, and a successful tale would be spun out for hundreds of episodes, with horror piled on horror to hold the interest of the semi-literate readers. In this entertaining book, the author focuses on some of the most famous 'dreadfuls'. Dyed-in-the-wool villains, real and imaginary, are brought to vivid life, among them Varney the Vampyre, Sawney Beane the Man-Eater, Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber, Dick Turpin, Jack Sheppard, Charles Peace, and Spring-Heeled Jack. Also examined are the rousing boys' stories which replaced the 'dreadfuls', featuring such heroes as Jack Harkaway, the resourceful schoolboy adventurer. We enter the world of the enterprising publishers who did not scruple to plagiarize popular novels and who having made a fortune, then became pious and respectable. The text is complemented by examples of the woodcuts which, always melodramatic and often borrowed from earlier, quite different stories, helped coax hard-earned pennies from prospective readers' pockets. This is a fascinating glimpse into a now largely forgotten world where nameless horrors stalked and where virtue triumphed only after copious and gloatingly described blood-letting."jupiter.
