Popular Library Paperbacks from the ’50s

Most of these have good artwork on the rear covers as well as the fronts. There is a bit of a theme here (with at least a couple of exceptions), in these days I should probably not admit that I like these covers so I wont (admit it that is).

“Dalesman” Mini Books

I don’t restrict myself to the “Dalesman” magazine, I look out for all their publications even when they stray out of God’s Own County (GOC).

 

Exploring: The Lake District, North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Coast (three Books)

Lakeland A to Z

Matlock

Peak District Walks

Roman Derbyshire

Shepherds Crooks and Walking Sticks

Walking in; Airedale : Bronte Country : North Yorkshire Moors : Lower Wharfedale : Upper Wharfedale

Yorkshire Mysteries and Oddities

All are available along with many other Dalesman publications, though if you intend visiting my shop and you are interested let me know as they are all at home as I intend getting round to reading them, especially the “walking” books. As the bumper sticker should say “Bibliophiles just read about it”.

 

 

No need to buy fewer books; Just buy smaller ones.

Well before paperbacks became the norm every publisher (or it seems like every publisher) had their own “Pocket Books”. Produced with differing quality and obviously different prices, though I am not convinced that any were of a low enough price to reach a massive audience.

 

 

 

Elizabeth Taylor famously bought Richard Burton a set of Everyman, knocking on for a thousand books. The choice of “Oxford World Classic” titles I suspect was influenced by a degree of nepotism, though that shouldn’t be surprising as “Oxbridge” thrives and is built on nepotism.

I am particularly drawn to the “Nelson” blue faux leather series. I have well over a thousand titles though from various publishers and some very “attractive” sets, nearly all are well bound and some have very striking dust jackets.

100 YORKSHIRE Sketches

 

Published by the Yorkshire Conservative Newspaper in the 50’s these 5″ X 5″ books are a perfect gift for any “Yorkshire” folk, or even for those not so lucky.

LEATHERWORK Home Handicraft Series by L Johnson 1949 £4.00

The Technique of Mountaineering – J E B Wright 1955 £3.00

PEKINGESE – Herminie Warner Hill – Foyles Handbook £1.00

ANALOG – Science Fact & Science Fiction

Digests, but not as we know them Jim, this is from the period when from some reason the publishers sought to supersize, bigger than A4.
