WHSmith 225th Anniversary Yellowback Special Editions

Nowadays yellowback books are a rare collector’s item, often fetching a good price when kept in good condition, but back in the late 1800’s they were a common sight on Britain’s railways, selling for two shillings in WHSmith & Son bookstalls.

Yellowbacks are an incredibly important part of the history of WHSmith, cementing our place in the books and rail industries, and we are very proud of the role we played in bringing books to the masses. As part of our 225th anniversary celebrations, this year we’re paying homage to seven popular classics by reproducing them as yellowbacks to be sold in WHSmith stores throughout 2017.
