Yellowbacks were cheap editions of novels published in the latter half of the nineteenth century. They were originally developed to compete with penny dreadfuls, marketed with their brightly coloured covers and popular and entertaining novels, often including sensational fiction. Routledge were one of the first publishers to being marketing yellowbacks with their 'Railway Library', this novel being included in this railway series.
