I want to hear tales about books for boys

First published in Salisbury Letters

I AM researching the pre-1960s history of boys’ literature in books, annuals, comics and magazines and would welcome any information readers may have regarding authors, publishers, illustrators and wholesalers.

I would also like to know of any collections and libraries that have been built up over the years.

The peak for boys’ literature was the 1930s/40s, so time is running out to gather as much information as possible before it is lost.
