Modern paperbacks can be differentiated by size.The Athenæum’s collection of over yellowbacks chiefly represents the work of Chatto & Windus, publishers located in Piccadilly, London. Old call number stickers indicate that these were part of the Athenæum’s 19th-century recreational reading collection, a collection which grew following the board decision in December, to allow.
