Signet paperback – Through the postal system to an address within the United Kingdom
These issues are all in good nick 114, 129, 183, 192, 213, 217, and 224 are all available for £3.00. 129 has two holes punched through but it has a 4 President cover that will obviously be needed the year after next.
188 has the stamps included, can’t guarantee the glue. I would like to find the issue, complete, that had the Alfred E Neuman 4 President Stamps. When I bought my copy the postage rate was 4d for a letter so I used them all and the letters (Christmas cards) were all delivered. I am looking for £5.00 for 188

My copy is, based on these descriptions, the better of the four, it is a 1947 second printing in vg+ condition (I am tempted to call it Fine but the paper is 74 years old). I am asking £15 plus P&P for my copy.
Not a publisher that lasted a long time, but they did publish some authors other publishes didn’t. What they did though is spend time choosing some great covers. Unusually I have included a large number in this blog. I did choose one of their covers for my title page.

Even the less than inspiring subjects have great illustrators.
Just added two new Dalesman publications to my stock that takes me up to 999 different magazines and books. Both these titles I am offering for £2.50 but as my next acquisition will be my 1000th it is about time to have another go at cataloguing them.
Just to give a flavour of some of the other titles.
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).

These two are; Live and Let Die 20th 1965 £2.50 and The Spy Who Loved Me 1st at £2.50.
