Fiction

This collection contains dime novels, nickel weeklies, reprint libraries (some of which contain both fiction and non-fiction but are collected here), and related popular fiction titles from the dime novel era (1860-1915).  Some representative precursors (penny dreadfuls and Yellowbacks) are also included, along with international translations and imitations, some dating later than 1915.
 
Please note some of the items in this historical collection may include outdated language and imagery that is insensitive, offensive, or which does not reflect the current values of Villanova University.  No endorsement is implied.
