BOOKS BY MARY ELIZABETH BRADDON
IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTWRAPPER

by
Jennifer Carnell
With illustrations from her collection.

Dustwrapper for the Hurst & Blackett pocket edition of The White House, circa 1908.

A dustwrapper for the Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co. 'Author's Edition' of Vixen, circa 1910-15.
(The above picture of Vixen was kindly provided by Peter Harries of Boz Books.)

One shilling edition of Our Adversary in the original dustwrapper, published by Hutchinson in the Sovereign Library, circa 1920.
(The above picture of Our Adversary was kindly sent to me by the owner - Peter Harries of Boz Books.)

Braddon gets updated for the 1930s, with potential readers tricked into thinking they were going to get a modern novel with this up-to-date dustjacket.
Her Convict published as a hardback in a colourful dustwrapper by Hurst & Blackett of London in their 'Famous 2/6 Novels' series.
'No stronger story could be imagined' said the Daily Telegraph - presumably a rather old quote by then.
This copy has the ink stamp of The IBC Library.
