*Boys’ Adventure & War Picture Libraries: Commencing in 1959, GM Smith/Micron’s Combat Picture Library, despite being relatively obscure compared to the more illustrious Commando, Battle, etc., nevertheless managed a very respectable 1,000+ issue run until 1985, outlasting many rivals. The early issues particularly are much less commonly seen than comparable Air Ace or Battle Picture Libraries, and have quite a bit of visual appeal, with intricate interior art and striking painted covers. We have 80 early issues – more than three-quarters of the first 100 – newly into stock, commencing with #8 and ending with #100, and in a truly superior grade; all of our new additions bar one are Fine – the singleton slips to VG – and to be honest, many of them are gleaming and virtually immaculate, no rust or staining and with only the very faint ‘pucker’ from spine glue preventing them from being VF. An astonishing average grade for their vintage. Pictured: #11 FN £15 and #23 FN £8.
