Wm. Collins's Indian Editions Part II
The Scottish-British publisher Wm. Collins Sons & Co. published paperbacks in the 1940s and 1950s in a number of countries, including India. The Indian editions were unnumbered and came in different series. Here are two examples. Never a Dull Moment is digest sized (12.5cm x 18.3cm) and has a dustjacket glued at the spine over blank white covers. The Body in the Library is mass market sized. Both are published by W.A.R. Collins, the first in Calcutta (1946), the second in Bombay (undated).
