5 Issues of this Children's Monthly magazine containing the FIRST 5 stories of Norman Hunter's "Professor Branestawm" not published in book form until 1933. These include; April: The Professor Invents a Machine. May: The Wild Waste-Paper. July: The Professor Borrows a Book. Sept: Burglars! Oct: The Screaming Clocks. These appear as numbers 1-5 with later issues having the odd short story by him as do the earlier issues, but no more for this character. As they were printed with gaps yet run consecutively they were published as intended as he finished them. The magazines are quarto size with printed covers by David Hutton, they have other tales and activity pages with an emphasis on traditional tales for children of a more middle-class family. A serial by Norah Francis Caulfield "The Sword of Adventure" in each issue + Agnes Hart, Agnes Frome, Hilda Finnemore, E. S. Thomas, Harold Black continues with his stories of "The Gnomes and Bloggs" in several and the editor himself Hugh Chesterman amongst others. Illustrations by Marjorie Dawes, Audrey Teago, Dorothy Furniss and others. Covers have soma age toning and or dust lines, one has a quarter page advert for the magazine annual cut out but all remain very good internally and near VG on covers. Each has about 40 pages in covers with adverts at the front and sometimes at the back also. Quarto. 1929. NOTE: This lead title of tales by Norman Hunter has no mention in ANY bibliographical information I could find of these stories appearing before 1933 and elaborate that they were taken from BBC broadcasts, or also used by the BBC at the same time the books was released with illustrations by William Heath Robinson in 1933. The magazine had a sister annual "Joy Street" issued yearly BUT with none of these tales being used in the books, they appear here only. The Annual was published by Basil Blackwell and was edited by Hugh Chesterman for over 10 years with each annual being numbered from Number 1 onwards.(Please contact us for further information).

We are a small, single-owner business. We have been operating on and off since 1977 and our stock is varied, leaning towards antiquarian and 19th century with the addition of original aquatint and lithographic, or woodcut engravings. Also maps and Ephemera - in fact, anything interesting on paper really. We have in stock every item we list. We do not use stock photographs, but photograph each item individually. We very rarely use "fine" or "mint" as a description, mainly due to the age and the fact that 99.9% of what we sell has been pre-owned and therefor Fine would not be a term for a book we sell despite its fine-like appearance. We always take items back unreservedly if not in the condition as described. We always try to describe fully.
