Vintage paperback romance covers, 1940s

Last weekend, my husband and I poked about the White Elephant in Essex, Massachusetts. Not the quaint White Elephant antique store in downtown Essex, but the gloriously junky White Elephant near the Ipswich line.

In the room where everything is covered with dust (bring Kleenex) and is 75% off, I found these treasures for only 25¢ each.

I didn’t notice until I got home that Mrs. Mike is missing its first 48 pages. I bet they would have taken at least another nickel off the price if I’d noticed the missing pages sooner.

1949 strawberry seed catalog from the W. F. Allen Company

I bought this last summer at the used bookstore/restaurant in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. I highly recommend both sides of the operation, although I don’t remember its official name. If you ever find yourself in Wellfleet, ask anybody and they’ll know how to direct you to the used bookstore/restaurant.

This is the cover of a 1949 strawberry seed catalog from the W.F. Allen Company of Salisbury, Maryland. While this cover is gorgeous, the inside of the catalog is black & white, boring and not worth the effort of scanning.

There was one bonus inside: this pre-addressed money order. Printed on the back of it is: Edition July 1946.
