*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: Boys’ Own Paper started in 1879 as a vessel for inculcating morals and clean living to the youth of that time, as an antidote to the ‘Penny Dreadful’ of that era, and proved a huge success, lasting 2,511 issues until 1967, and spawning a plethora of imitators. As an antecedent of the modern comic, we have a selection of Boys’ Own Paper new into our stock, 30+ issues ranging in dates from 1957 to 1964; although the Christian message was mercifully diluted by that time, the emphasis was still on healthy outdoor activities and fiction with clean-limbed heroes defending the interests of the Empire. Biggles, the famed aviator created by W. E. Johns, was a frequent feature. Many issues from this time came with a supplement, concentrating either on the big hardware boys were supposedly fond of (trains, planes, etc.) or models thereof. Where present, these supplements are noted.
