Where Did The White Circles Come From? Part IV

There were 429 White Circle titles published by Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Canada Ltd. from 1942 to 1952. Some three-quarters were originally published by the Scottish-English parent company Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Ltd. Duell Sloan and Pearce of New York was second with 17. The publisher with the third most books was London's Michael Joseph Limited with eight.

Founded in 1935 today Michael Joseph is an imprint in the Penguin General division of Penguin Group UK.

All of the WC reprints were from the last four years, 1949-1952. Here we'll look at the first four. Collins usually described a book's genre. Trottie True is a "novel", the other three mysteries.
