LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Viking, London - first edition ISBN:0670819468, 1988. Hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Twenty b&w photographs, five long appendices (lists current publications, pen-names, editors and illustrators of 'Gem' and 'Magnet', selected papers & books with stories by Charles Hamilton), bibliography, and index. Charles Harold St John Hamilton was a literary phenomenon - he has written the equivalent of a thousand novels, including westerns, romances, marine adventures and crime stories, using various pseudonyms,. His school stories have become legendary (mainly in 'Gem' & 'Magnet' boys magazines, now highly collectible). This book discusses the literary quality and social attitudes of the stories and some reasons for their resilient appeal.
