Just some quick pics, these really tickled me. They’re both from the 1960′s.

‘Cassandra by Chance’ by Betty Neels original cover from 1973, opposite a 1990′s reprint of the same book.
While you’ll often find art-work reproduced from vintage pulp-fiction, the early Mills and Boon and Harlequin artwork tends to get overlooked. Some of those old covers feature the coolest artwork, and I am sorry they don’t reproduce it when they reprint collector’s editions of books. Once in a (very long) while I come across large collections of M&B from the 60′s and 70′s, and if I am lucky I might find some of the 1950′s hardcovers (I have featured a picture of one in a previous blog on Betty Neels) which are really a lot of fun to go through.

Awaking early on yet another freezing morning this week, I glanced at the note-pad on the fridge where I had scribbled a note about a book sale as I was getting milk for my coffee. I vaguely recalled the local library sale and the church sale I received an email about a few weeks back, which was about a forty-minute drive.
Having tentatively decided to go to the local sale because of the weather and maybe try the church sale on Sunday, I woke Craig up and hustled him out of the house before nine.
