SHERLEY’S DOG BOOK 1934

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.

SPORTS BUDGET 1929 & 1930

I have 20 issues of Sports Budget. I can’t find out a lot about them but would be willing to sell at £5.00 a copy. I did find this description;

“Excellent weekly newspaper concentrating mostly on football-either short stories or factual reports. First issue January 13th 1923. It is printed on newspaper stock. Printed and published by The Amalgamated Press from the Fleetway House Farringdon Street London. It had 24 pages and sold for 2d.

Amalgamated Press had tried different football formats earlier with Football Favourite (4/9/20-30/4/21) and Sports for Boys (20/10/20-21/4/21) and seemingly came up with the winning and much more long lived Sports Budget.

The main bulk of its stories were dedicated to football, although there were alternatives in the shape of cricket and rugby.”

Detective Pulps (UK editions)

All complete but not in the best condition hence the price. I do like the type casting on the FBI Detective Cover, the clean cut Dick, the innocent Kid and the sly looking kidnapper complete with cig.
