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.

Darcy Glinto – You took me….keep me…

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

The Brute – Paul Renin

This edition was published by R & L Locker in 1946 in Stoke on Trent. Though I can’t find this edition for sale anywhere, a few other titles by this author are on offer. This is clean tight copy This price includes UK Postage.

£27.00

Manhunt Detective Story Monthly November 1953 Vol 1 no. 4

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. Richard Ellington, Richard Deming, Evan Hunter, Robert Turner, Kris Neville and Roy Carroll. I am offering this to any UK location for £7.00

£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.

Passage to Terror by Edward Ronns (Edward S Aarons)

Published by Gaywood Press undated but around 1952 this is a very good plus (near fine) copy. Posted to a UK address for £25

WDL Books

The Man from Madura – Leslie Gillespie

WDL 1959 1st vg “He was all man – Rough Mean and too hot to handle” does not really tie in with back cover blurb that does mention Burma. All available (until sold) at notinheckmondwikebookshop.com Assuming I remember in what safe place I put them.

£7.50

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.WDL The Stowaway 127

I discovered Leslie Charteris and the Saint before TV added him to the list of characters ruined by either the wrong actors, poor script writers or the sanitisation squad. Not that I have anything against Roger Moore, that series was ruined by the script writers and TV Policy. As happened to Lovejoy and one of the worse crimes of all Pascoe and Dalziel (I did think Hale and Pace did it better). Wrong actors ruined the early Rebus and for me one of the worse, Banks. The later Rebus was better and Rowan Atkinson as Margret was a touch of genius, not that at the time I had anything against Rupert Davies or Michael Gambon. Branagh isn’t a patch on Henrickson, but I suppose that is a fault of the script writers, we should leave Nordic Noir alone and just show the sub-titled versions.

Dicks Detecting, Spies Spying & Murderers Murdering

A couple of rarer titles in todays lot. I now have 7052 pre ’74 paperbacks in stock, that is not true I have probably nearer 10,000 in stock, but I know, or think I know, where 7052 are located. So if it seems expensive on ABE or Amazon, or they don’t even have a copy (true of two of today’s listing) then why not give me a try.
