Obviously today is a day for thinking about stock levels of the new books we sell (despite selling 99% second hand & collectable books we stock new books by a couple of very small but subject related publishers). We have just received through the post some copies of 'True to the Trefoil' - a celebration of fictional girl guides, an interesting work following the development of girl guide stories, and 'Monica Edwards - the authorised biography' - the first biography of her, commissioned by her family and written by Brian Parks, an expert on her books.
These books were both published by Girls Gone By. 'Girls Gone By Publishers' is a publishing venture run by Clarissa Cridland and Anne MacKie-Hunter. They re-publish some of the most popular girls' fiction from the twentieth century, concentrating on those titles which are most sought after, and difficult to find on the second-hand market As with the titles above, they also occasionally publish non-fiction books that are genre related.
