Collins Crime Club

Books Wanted Urgently

We are urgently looking to buy any pre 1942 Collins Crime Club first editions in dust jacket
We are also interested in collections or larger runs of pre 1950 titles.

As specialists in this field we are able to pay the very highest prices for books we seek

Whilst generally seeking 1st issue books we may also be interested in second issue titles priced 3/6 (pre 1940 only)
Also jackets that are unpriced are also of interest

If you have anything you think first our criteria please do get in touch
Please do not send scans or attachments on first contact as they are deleted unread - thank you

Collins Crime Club Research

As well as books we are also interested in information from anyone connected with this publisher
Or indeed anyone related to its early authors

Collins Crime Club Ebay Auctions

Great care needs to be taken when dipping your toe into the world of ebay
Whilst it is true that some rare books do turn up on ebay, as does the occassional bargain
A large number are dubious, to say the least!
Generally speaking, the problems are reprints sold as first editions and undisclosed faults
Some of this is out of ignorance - some simply fraudulent
Sellers can, and regularly do, misled potential bidders
We do not suggest not buying Collins Crime Club on ebay, merely excercise great caution
Check all the bibliographical details carefully
