For an account of 19th-century British series (pre EL) see 
Richard D. Altick, "From Aldine to Everyman: Cheap Reprint 
Series of the English Classics, 1830-1906" ... originally 
published in Studies in Bibliography v. 11 (1958) and 
reprinted in Altick's book, Writers Readers and Occasions 
(Ohio State Univ. Press, 1989).
