    Book details

'The Mysteries of London' Volume 1 is a mammoth 818-page novel. This penny dreadful (or city mysteries novel) was begun as a weekly serial by George W. M. Reynolds in 1844. Reynolds wrote the first two series of this long-running narrative of life in the seedy underbelly of mid-nineteenth-century London. Thomas Miller wrote the third series and Edward L. Blanchard wrote the fourth series. All were immensely popular. Reynolds modelled his story after Eugene Sue's novel 'Les Mystè:res de Paris' (The Mysteries of Paris), and he paralleled Sue's tale of vice, depravity, and squalor in the Parisian slums. Installments were published weekly and contained a single illustration and eight pages of text printed in double columns. The weekly numbers were later bound in cloth covers with a fresh title page and table of contents and offered as complete works of fiction.
