Badger – Western and Spy

Not genres associated with Badger and I have not been able to find out if they are written by the Reverand Fanthorpe or not. The covers are striking in my mind, but I am biased towards 50’s and 60’s covers.collage Badger 01

Westerns – Hard Backs and Paperbacks

I know it’s a genre that has not been in fashion for a long time, and I admit not one that I ever got into in any big way, but it should not be ignored.

IMG_20200328_110302

This list is some of the titles I have in stock (and for the most part, I know where they are), only some as I have only recently been adding tags to my stock list, I have about 6,500 still to stock check and about the same number to add to my stock records. So a few weeks work there. (given that it has taken me about 10 years to list this many the time estimate may be a bit optimistic)

ARROW – Paperbacks Stock Check

I thought I had a few more titles but the stock check revealed some gaps, they may have been misfiled, but it is more likely that I have sold them and forgotten to update my records.

Arrow like other paperback publishers at the time had an eclectic spread of authors and subjects. It picking out covers to illustrate their range I seem to have missed the most prominent and prolific author they featured, Dennis Wheatley.

Arrow Stock Check (1)

I always like to compare how illustrations change over time, sometimes influenced by a film or to justify a price increase (note the 20% increase in these two editions.

The range covers a non fiction account of miniature submarines, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, part of John Creasey’s prodigious output and an illustration of how language changes over time, though it is difficult to think what Ann Hepple’s  book title could be meant to mean today.

Westerns -by – Cole Shelton and Ben Jefferson

On the principle that there must still be some people around who read “Cowboy” books I offer the two featured hard to find books.

Satan’s Outpost by Cole Shelton is the rarest so I am asking £5.00 The Damned by Ben Jefferson is more than the 10p on the cover at £2.50.
