Nat Gould & Mellifont “Racing Novels”

A precursor  to Dick Francis? Must admit I had not heard of him. The “A Racecourse Tragedy” seems pretty rare if you check the price on ABE. These “Mellifont” paperbacks are not in the best condition two have a piece of the spine missing and one, “A Stable Mystery”, like the Donald when serving in the forces is concerned, has no spine at all.

Mellifont Racing Novels

I think 1949, one of the first in the series by Frank Brendon is probably the rarest but is in the worse condition the series seems to be mainly Nat Gould with a couple by Edward Woodward and one each by Vann Larr and Frank Brendon. The price is for a single book (specify which one) delivered to any UK address, not by horse.
