*Girls Comics: We begin a lengthy update to our stock of Princess, the publication launched in 1960 for the younger female reader. Although Princess rather shame-facedly downplayed its comics content, pushing the ‘quality magazine’ features, it was the comic strips such as “The Happy Days”, “Alona the Wild One” and “Tilly Tuffin” which kept the readers coming back for more. In 1964, Princess gobbled up the fallen Girl weekly, and together with “Lettice Leefe” and “Belle and Mamie At Ballet School”, seemed to also acquire a less staid attitude. Photo-covers became livelier, pop features started appearing, and the title showed the signs of embracing – albeit very tentatively – the swinging Sixties. This selection includes a couple of 1962 issues, and rather more from 1963 and 1964, including the first Princess & Girl merger (pictured). Mostly affordable low-mid grade, but complete reading copies, around thirty in all. More Princesses to follow!
