Longmans’ Pocket Library

Longmans’ Pocket Library consisted of, roughly, 150 titles. A subsequent paperback series carries the same name.

This February 1913 reprint of the first Pocket Library edition (1907) has a common-design jacket with a price printed on the front. On this particular jacket, a sticker (partially removed) covered the price. The titles do not seem to be numbered. Jacket flaps are blank.


Some of the titles in the series are listed on the back of the jacket.


The binding has a nicely designed spine with a ship theme, also stamped into the front cover.


A catalog is also included in the book itself. Prices are 2/- for cloth and 3/- for leather-bound.


An old sticker from Foyles Bookstore in London is affixed to the endpapers.
