I will put them in alphabetic order the next update. If you want to see more covers look at my older posts.


Dalesman is a British monthly regional magazine, based in Skipton, and serving the English county of Yorkshire. Its first edition was published in March 1939, under the original title of The Yorkshire Dalesman: A Monthly Magazine of Dales’ Life and Industry. Although originally only serving the Yorkshire Dales, the magazine was soon expanded to cover the whole county of Yorkshire, with a particular focus on the countryside and over the years it has become a northern institution.It remains the biggest selling regional consumer magazine in the UK and Yorkshire’s best selling magazine.

Dalesman 1939 04 April #2 (2)

I have 981 Dalesman titles in stock including the first one from 1939. I am a bit sparse on the last couple of years but only have about 5 or 6 dates missing in between. They are the ideal birthday or anniversary gift for Yorkshire Folk.

I do have other Dalesman publications other than the magazines so if you are looking for any particular date or other publication please ask me. I am not cheap but my prices are realistic.

Many of the covers make excellent cards and are great for framing.

Adult Romance?

A bit of a loose classification, but what else can I call them?

Touring Wales by Pub

How about this for a challenge, have a pint in all the pubs, the ones that still exist that is (the book is in the shop but I think there are about 80 listed though that was 1968 just a year after breathalysers were introduced and folks still went to pubs).

Inns Wales (1)

I do have many more titles in this series, but I’ll be damned if I know where I have put them. This is unusual in that it is a hard back. Each pub included has a photo and description.

If you are having difficulty finding your way about and have a bicycle I have just the map for you.


I can do a bargain package of book and map for £5.00 but you will have to provide your own bicycle and pay for your own pints.

SORRY Just noticed the map will not help as the book covers Anglesey, Caernarvon, Denbigh and Flint.


I don’t think you have to be called Sherley to read it and as its the 15th edition it must have had a wider audience. If you are called Shirley, or have a friend called Shirley who is into dogs, or even a friend not called Shirley who is into dogs then I would be willing to sell this copy for the bargain price of £4.00


Fantasy and Science Fiction – most US but a few UK editions

I think four are UK editions with different contents that US editions for same year and month, but just to complicate the issue, many have a UK price overprinted on US editions. However to make matters easier all mine are priced at £2.50.

Dennis Wheatley

I Thought I had a good collection of his works, I knew he was prolific ( not John Creasey or Michael Moorcock prolific but prolific just the same) over 70 books. I do have, paperbacks, hardbacks, hardbacks with dust jackets and some 1st editions (one signed) in stock, mostly at £2.50 each but a few at £5.00. I have highlighted titles I have in stock in red on the bibliography below.

Dennis Yates Wheatley (1897 – 1977) was an English author whose prolific output of stylish thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world’s best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was one of the main inspirations for Ian Fleming’s James Bond stories.

Born in South London, he was the eldest of three children of an upper-middle-class family, the owners of Wheatley & Son of Mayfair, a wine business. He admitted to little aptitude for schooling, and was expelled from Dulwich College. Soon after his expulsion Wheatley became a British Merchant Navy officer cadet on the training ship HMS Worcester.

During the Second World War, Wheatley was a member of the London Controlling Section, which secretly coordinated strategic military deception and cover plans. His literary talents gained him employment with planning staffs for the War Office. He wrote numerous papers for the War Office, including suggestions for dealing with a German invasion of Britain.

Dennis Wheatley died on 11th November 1977. During his life he wrote over 70 books and sold over 50 million copies.
