CommentsOne of the many popular novels by Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835-1915), several of which were issued in the yellowback format shortly after their first publication. The Venetians was first published in 1892 in three volumes. The advertisements on this copy agree with Wolff's description, which states: "The list of Braddon titles on the end-papers ends with this title, Number 53. This is a first yellow-back edition."
