Dorothy L. Sayers:
The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club. Penguin #5.

London: Penguin Books, 1935. First Penguin printing. Lacking original green and white covers! In very basic DIY red cloth boards supplied by Penguin for self-binding, with hand-written spine title in gilt. However, the text block has benefited from the protection: it is nice and square, and the contents are clean, with slight signs of handling to the first few pages, and small corner spots to pp58-63. Worth rebinding to your taste, perhaps. Contents VG+, cover - no!.

Price: £30.00

Ferguson, Rachel:
The Brontės went to Woolworth's [The Brontes went to Woolworths]. Penguin #245.

Harmondsworth: Penguin Books, 1940. First Penguin printing. 182pp +[10] adverts. Very good copy in dustjacket. Pages slightly toned but otherwise clean and unmarked and intact only with foxing to inner surface of covers. In smart orange-and-white penguin livery, moderate foxing apparent to white areas, otherwise bright and clean, with a small split to base of lower joint. The unclipped DUSTJACKET has a small triangular chip to the base of the slightly browned spine, some scuffing at the head, some splitting to the folds, and some foxing to the white areas on the front. A very nice copy. Very Good in very good dust-jacket.
