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.
Probably because of the time (50’s & 60’s) World Distributers (don’t know where the “L” comes from) seem to have done a lot of second world war related titles both fiction and non-fiction. John Steinbeck’s East of Eden is notable because of the James Dean cover, Frankenstein and Swingin Dors are also not that easy to get hold of.
I can’t put a payment button up as the prices vary, so you will have to contact me if any of the titles interest you. I have, up to date catalogued 6,648 paperbacks, and though I am slowly working through a stock check, I am 95% confident that I know where most of the books listed are.
I also have a very large number of SF digests, not counting the 50 foot of paperbacks, but I have not got round to cataloguing them yet.
This is not listed on any site that I know of for sale. Lloyd Cole seems to have published a wide range of books but not in great numbers (only 86 listings on ABE). James Booth seems to have made contributions to compilations.
This is typical of War Time publications (1944) in that it is a 32 page booklet. I don’t know what it is really worth despite being very rare, but I am willing to part with it for £10.00
