Topic: How did you 'meet' DW?

I first met DW early in 1979 when transferred to a new office in Salford. Travelling from Hazel Grove by bus, train, bus took about 1½ hours each way then. When I ran out of material, a colleague suggested I try DW. "No thanks", said I, "isn't he into black magic?". Having received a tirade of mock...

I have a first and twentyfifth edition. In Chapter XI, The Horror in the Cellars, both have blank sixth pages other than for the words Tobias briefly describes below. In full they were: [Richard Eaton's views on the French collapse were rather strong, so Mr. Wheatley decided that as a matter of cour...

To Lucifer - A Daughter

I have just acquired a first edition of The Early Adventures of Roger Brook. Whilst happily comparing it to my second edition, I noticed three immediate differences between the 1951 and 1953 editions: 1. the 1st ed and usual publisher's entry London New York Toronto etc had moved on a page by 2nd ed...

Bob I've been looking for a way of repaying you for the many hours of pleasure and reams of valuable free data your site has given me. I think I have an idea. If you think the site and its members would benefit from access to the Powerpoint Presentation, I would be very happy to sponsor the first ye...

I can go with the second world war theory as very plausible especially so in view of his War Cabinet work. I was uncertain about the guest's spelling for the name of Dumas' anti-hero so I had a quick look on the web. My suspicion seems to have been proved correct as an online edition of The Three Mu...

They Found Atlantis

I have a third impression brick red hardback which, listing Contraband as "In Preparation", should be around 1936. Indeed, like your excellent data displays for the first edition, it has 339 pages; 5 adverts; and 40 pages of Hutchinson's Spring List No 1. So I think 1936 is pretty safe. I can confir...

Just registered with the Library although I have been a regular visitor to the website for some time. I received a gift of a bookmark with a book I purchased recently which, it is alleged, was already in the 1st edition. It is certainly from around 1950 although undated and I will send separately a ...
