*Boys’ Adventure & War Picture Libraries: In our 20 years + of trading, we’ve never had through our hands such a wealth of early Commando Picture Libraries as graces our catalogue today. This most famous of all UK Picture Libraries is eagerly sought after and early issues seldom seem to turn up in quantity, if at all. Most of the first 200 issues are now in stock, including #1, #2, #4, #10, #12, #17 & #20. There are also multiple copies of many issues (up to 3 in some cases) in a choice of grades and prices.
The #1 is, sadly, incomplete, with the final 8 pages missing (but otherwise in GD/VG condition); we have included a copy of #4453 with it, which reprints the story in full; the #1 is priced at £100, but would be many times that if complete. #2 is PR/FA at £100 with a taped spine but complete; #4 is a sparkling FN grade at £200; #10 is even nicer FN/VF £200; #12 is a very nice FN+ £125; #17 VG/FN £60, #20 FN/VF £80. the rest of the run grades very differently, with some poors and fairs, but many more VGs, FNs, and a great number of VF copies. Not too many chances to get your hands on a nice batch of Commando PLs, and we expect interest to be very keen indeed.
