My Life with Diana – Paul Renin

My Life with Diana – Paul Renin

Published by BEACON PUBLISHING Co. Leicester undated but about 1949. This copy, though very rare, has the rear cover missing. This is what Beacon says about their copy that they are asking £40.00 for ” Beacon Publishing Co., [ca.1949]. First edition. “Diana Wilton looked extremely attractive that afternoon sitting on the lounge in the smart sitting-room of her Chelsea flat and smiling across at me through the drifting smoke of her cigarette”. According to his publishers, Paul Rénin “knows women better than they know themselves” – suspicious wife, glamorous widow, famous actress, etc. Crown 8vo (19cm). 112pp. Original pictorial stapled wrappers; some wear to spine; some internal creasing; a reasonable copy of an uncommon title. Exchange stamp of the “Modern Book Stall’s” [sic] of Leicester, Loughborough and Coalville Market, on upper wrapper and final leaf. No copy traced in any major library worldwide.” Price includes UK Posting – For other postal rates to more distant locations please contact me.

Maria Monk

Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk

“Maria Monk was a Canadian woman whose book Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk, or, The Hidden Secrets of a Nun’s Life in a Convent Exposed claimed to expose systematic sexual abuse of nuns and infanticide of the resulting children by Catholic priests in her convent in Montreal.” I didn’t know where to put this, but as it was published by Pemberton (undated) I have assumed it is not a book about divination. This copy is a bit knocked about but still vg to vg-. Price includes UK Posting – For other postal rates to more distant locations please contact me. I will apply a discount for simultaneous purchases, If I remember.

£11.50

Deep South Slave, I Mobster and Nobody knows the dead all SOLD

Only one on offer on ABE for £175 though I have found one elsewhere for only £100. Published in 1950 by Robin Hood Press cover art by Terry. Internally the staples look dark but the paper is free of foxing and discolouring, in fact in much better condition then many much newer publications.

£55.00

Not in the same league as the rest of these offerings but the cover was worth inclusion and the contributing authors are impressive ; Mickey Spillane (serial), Henry Kane, David Goodis, Patrick Wilmot.

£7.00

A lot of these titles were produced when it was difficult to get American Paperbacks in the UK and saw the opportunity to cash in on the popularity of Hank Janson. You can check out my Hank Janson page.

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).
