SWEENEY TODD, the Barber of Fleet-Street.

(Original title: The String of Pearls)

VOL. I

(Looking for Volume II? Click here)

Now freshly typeset in easy-to-read modern type, this two-volume edition presents the full original text and woodcut illustrations of what’s probably the most influential and notorious “Penny Dreadful” ever published: the one in which London was introduced to Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet-Street, and his pie-selling partner-in-crime, Mrs. Lovett.

This is the complete and definitive edition of this timeless horror classic, lightly footnoted to help the modern reader better appreciate the period slang and pop-culture references throughout this thriling Victorian “penny-dreadful.”
