Fireside Publications Part IV

In parts I and II I discussed 10 of the magazine sized paperbacks from Toronto's Fireside Publications. As far as I know there are only two more. One I've not seen is Evelyn Dick: The Tragic Story of an Emotional Degenerate by Keith Edgar and Richard Daniel. However the book is briefly seen in this Evelyn Dick clip at 1:28.

The other is the undated 64 page Women of All Nations by Watson V. Somers which appears to be a paperback original. The cover art is by O.W. Peak. Subtitled "Strange Customs the World Over" Mr. Somers takes us to Africa, India, Southeast Asia and around the world ending with the cave man's woman. Notwithstanding the picture of "the Canadian girl of today" we learn nothing about Canadian women.
