Macrae Smith Part I

The Philadelphia publisher Macrae Smith was the second most popular source for the early Harlequin titles. Thirty-eight of the 477 titles published by Harlequin between 1949 and 1959 were originally published by Macrae Smith. In contrast only two of the 429 titles from the White Circle imprint (1942-1952) of Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Canada were Macrae Smith books.

Here are two from Harlequin and one from Collins. Honeymoon Mountain and True by the Sun were published in 1934 and One Way Street in 1936.
