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).

Needless to say, I have many (too numerous to list) Bond titles in stock. I nearly bought a hard back first with dj of Octopussy yesterday then I noticed it had 30 pages missing, also I have a perfect copy in my shop anyway. These two are; Live and Let Die 20th 1965 £2.50 and The Spy Who Loved Me 1st at £2.50.

Gladwell Richardson who I have never heard of, apparently was extremely prolific and respected in the Western Genre, though despite 190 listings on ABE, this title is not one of them, Trigger Fingers £3.00.

Fehrenbach, The Battle of Anzio £2.50
