In Reply to: Money Moon -- 4 Shilling Edition Jackets posted by Frank on January 27, 2009 at 05:48:14:
I have 3 dustjackets with the "Chronicles of the Imp" picture on the back (the one with Dick Brent dangling from a willow over a drifting punt in which Lisbeth is apparently dozing). They are all 4/- editions: "The Broad Highway" (c 1917), "Amateur Gentleman" (c 1923) and "Money Moon" (c 1923). I am surprised to find how many times "Chronicles" appears on the rear panel of the dust jacket of other books - clearly a good little earner! I know of no other artwork for different books appearing on the dust jacket.
Regarding dates of publication, I refer you to Appendix 7 of "The Farnol Companion", where all is revealed. For those not privileged to have a copy of that august tome: many 4/- Farnol editions appeared, including the first edition of "Over the Hills" (1930), the signpost-on-cover edition of "Broad Highway" mentioned above, 12 volumes with a single border to the front cover but no logo (1921-1926), several of the Standard/Library edition (1926-1940) and many of the Popular edition (1942-1943). Well, you did ask!
