Books not listed Elsewhere (that I can find)

Every now and again I come across a book that even Google can not find for sale and Amazon has listed for a high price, but not available. They may be rare because they are crap (technical term), and no one bought them, or they may be in high demand, were not reprinted or something else.

Gangsters All by George Stanley

This is a 32 page stapled booklet published by Mitre Press, undated but Mitre published the first edition (and as far as I know only edition) of this book in 1945. I can’t find much out about George Stanley but he seems to have been published from 1932 to 1950. The cover (which I like) is by “Vic” Posted to any UK address

£30.00

Death on Delivery – Mystery Thriller by F.W.Gumley published in 1944 (first and perhaps “only” edition) by The Mitre Press, London. I can find this listed but Gumley seems to have had much more success as a Children’s author, I have found the book mentioned, but not for sale and can’t find the covers illustrated anywhere (apart fromm on my own Facebook page.

Death on Delivery by F.W,Gumley 1944

A typical “Mushroom publication from Mitre Press, 32 page stapled (rusting) booklet. I didn’t want to be too aggressive with the dust stains as otherwise the book is vg. Posted to UK address

Kit Corelli TV Stylist by Eleanor Arnett Nash

Kit Corelli TV Stylist by Eleanor Arnett Nash

Can’t say much about the book as there is no blurb on the covers to give a clue what it is about, but Scottie publish children’s books so it must be (or should be) a children’s book. The author has written other books about make-up. so that could be a clue. Through the post to UK address
