This leaflet is advertising a great book sale at John Steven’s establishment at 304 The Strand. There was a wealth of printed material produced during the 19th century and novels were very popular. Newly bought they were very expensive and so it was generally only the upper and middle classes that could afford to read them. There was a wide variety of material available from historic or romantic novels to detective stories and tales of science fiction.
