ated from Copac) - London - E. Appleyard, 1846. ated from Copac) - London - E. Appleyard, 1846 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarceearly penny dreadful focused on the Aztecs by American author Joseph Holt Ingraham (1809-1860). First and sole edition. Part of 'Roscoe's Series'. Additional illustrated title page and illustrations in the text. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. Penny Dreadful was a term applied to nineteenth century British fiction publications, usually lurid serial stories appearing in parts over a number of weeks, each part costing a penny. The term, however, soon came to encompass a variety of publications that featured cheap sensational fiction, such as story papers and booklet libraries. The Penny Dreadfuls were printed on cheap pulp paper and were aimed primarily at working class adolescents. Owing to their cheap production, their perceived lack of value, and such hazards as war-time paper drives, the Penny Dreadfuls, particularly the earliest ones, are rare today. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally sound although a trifle rubbed and bumped. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright and clean aside from the odd spot, and some dust marks. Copperplate ink signature to front pastedown. Overall: VERY GOOD.
