Collins White Circle Authors Part VIII

Among the 142 authors whose work was published by Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Canada Ltd. in their White Circle imprint were two who used pen names. Geoffrey Martin Bennett wrote as Sea-Lion and Lewis Anselm da Costa Ritchie (Ricci) as bartimeus. Both were serving officers in the Royal Navy and as such could not use their names on published works. All three books were originally published by the parent firm Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Ltd. All stories involve naval settings and characters.

Ritchie's only WC title, Steady as You Go, was one of two White Circles reprinted with a different cover.
