Heron Books Collections

Heron Books Series

Over the coming months of 2011 it is my intention to document the various superb collections that were published by Heron Books in the 60’s,  70’s and 80’s.

My objective is to supplement the already good work at the Heron publications as listed in the Heron Book Catalogue 1982 website. Anyone wishing to contribute to this documentation is welcome to do so.

My efforts so far can be found by clicking on Heron Books Index

View Heron Books Documentation at the Dennis Wheatley website

Edito-Service / Heron Books were responsible throughout the 60s, 70s and early 80s for publishing ‘Collectors Editions’ of famous authors, including Agatha Christie, Charles Dickens, Alexandre Dumas, Aldous Huxley, Alistair MacLean, Wilbur Smith and many many others. These books were mainly sold by Mail Order and were advertised mainly in the Sunday Newspaper Supplements.

    I have been in contact with you before.
    Do you have the Heron Books ‘The Black Tulip’ and ‘The Lady of the Camelias’ from the Alexandre Dumas set?

    Unfortunately shipping costs from Australia would not make this a cost effective purchase. Many thanks for your interest.

    I collected the Charles Dickens set in the 1980s. I have 30 books in pristine condition and now know that I am missing the following titles

    A Child’s History of England
    American Notes/ Pictures from Italy
    Our Mutual Friend I
    Our Mutual Friend II
    Reprinted Pieces
    The Old Curiosity Shop I

    Is it worth trying to find these editions to complete the set?

    Many thanks for your superb Heron Books index.
    There is so little information about this prolific publisher that any contribution is welcome. Keep up the good work.
