WDL 1958 1st vg Price includes UK Posting – For other postal rates to more distant locations please contact me.


The Man from Madura – Leslie Gillespie

WDL 1959 1st vg “He was all man – Rough Mean and too hot to handle” does not really tie in with back cover blurb that does mention Burma. All available (until sold) at notinheckmondwikebookshop.com Assuming I remember in what safe place I put them.


I always did like their covers, what I didn’t realise was how many rare titles they had printed. Take the Simenon for example, though it may have been published under another title, this is the only UK paperback I can find.WDL The Stowaway 127
