More Paperbacks to Whet the appetite of the discerning reader.


From Conan to Prehistoric man, come to think of it not probably all that far. The rarest book today is Edgar Mowrers  РGermany Puts the Clock Back Рthe first Penguin Special and on a different vein HG Wells РThe Cone. The Arabs in History by Bernard Lewis is also a rare title. Not that any of the other books are common in these formats.SC 11112018

Even more WDL titles

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


WDL -a lot War but a mixture.

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.

More Hank Janson

I had difficulty in choosing what covers to use, I have a strong feeling that the Amorous Captive cover is not historically accurate, the slave masters shoes don’t seem practical.

More Stock added

A real mixture as these are newly catalogued as opposed to items from a stock check. Including Freeman Wills Croft, PD Ballard, Ferguson, Poul Anderson and Eric Frank Russell among others.

Listed Last Night 27th Oct 2018

This is only a sample of the books I listed last night, I chose these to demonstrate the variety of books I stock. We had just finished watching a documentary on the writing of Doctor Zhivago when I picked up the book for listing.
