'Print Culture and the Novel: 1850-1900'

A One-Day Conference, English Faculty, University of Oxford

No longer was it possible for people to avoid reading matter; everywhere
they went it was displayed - weekly papers at a penny or twopence, complete
books, enticing in their bright picture covers, at a shilling, and all fresh
and crisp from the press. No wonder that the fifties, which saw the spread
of Smith's stalls to almost every principal railway line in the country,
were also the period when the sales of books and periodicals reached
unprecedented levels.
