Found in Books 13: The Book Club Newsletter

I see I last did one of these posts in 2012. A sad reflection on how much harder it is to buy old books these days. Last week, I bought a book on eBay and inside was this members’ newsletter.



It’s a trifold and printed both sides, so plenty to read. See also The Popular Book Club, 1957 here



This book would have cost club members 5/3 in 1965. It’s in excellent condition.
