Price One Penny is a helpful database filled with bibliographic information on penny bloods published between 1836 and 1860, when penny dreadfuls dominated the market. Although these are not the same thing as chapbooks, they are the cheap literature which followed, and therefore can provide an interesting comparison for chapbook scholars.
