|Jacket Protector ||Add to Basket
|This is the second title in the series. It was first published in September 1946 by Edmund Ward with illustrations by Reginald Payne. This is the seventh impression, issued in May 1949.
This is currently the earliest ReproJacket with "Laurel and Hardy" flaps -- the back flap is almost as wide as the back panel and was used to advertise other books from the publisher. It reverted to match the front flap at some point between 1956 and 1959.
Jacket illustration by Reginald Payne.
