Here are the 13th and 14th of 19 titles that Harlequin reprinted as new numbers in the series from 1949 to 1959. Both have new front and back covers. The Murder on the Links is a reprint (that is, text has not been reset) but Maverick Guns has new page breaks such that the first edition has 124 pages of text and the second 122. There is no notice of the first edition in the second edition of Maverick Guns.
It's been a while since a post in my series on Harlequin Worthies®. This group of 10 reveals one western, one historical, one Mountie and seven crime/thrillers. Once again only the crime/thrillers have any potential.
61 Halleran, E. E. Shadow Of The Badlands 62 Merwin Jr., Sam Message From A Corpse 63 Brandon, William The Dangerous Dead 64 Michel, M. Scott Sinister Warning [The X-Ray Murders] 65 Clamp, H. M. E. Bridewell Beauty 66 Moore, Amos Royce Of The Royal Mounted 67 Tracy, Don Criss Cross 68 Bogart, William The Queen City Murder Case 69 Schofield, Wm. G. Payoff In Black 70 Merwin Jr., Sam Knife In My Back
Criss Cross is the basis for the 1949 film noir of the same name starring Burt Lancaster. That deserves a Worthy®.
The "King's English" Self-Pronouncing Pocket Dictionary and Vocabulary Builder by J. M. Parrish and John R. Crossland is one of two early paperbacks from Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Canada in a numbered series starting with S. In the case of the dictionary, S3, noted at the base of the spine. There is a S4 but I've never seen S1 or S2. The copyright date is 1942 but a two page advertisement for "Books in Canada" at the back provides a date for the printing. This list of books includes four from the White Circle paperback series, including Literary Lapses which was published in 1945.
The "King's ... is a reprint of The New ImprovedStandard Dictionary. The only difference is the title page with the new title, a reset author listing and the addition of the street address in Toronto, 70 Bond Street.
