        a novel cost 31 shillings in 1836, average worker earned 6 to 20
        shillings per week) but a monthly installment, 32 pages with 2
        illustrations and advertisements, could be sold for a shilling.

Literally, six shillings = GBP 0.30; 20 shillings = GBP 1.00; but both
have to be multiplied by some factor to give current-day equivalencies.
