"The Affair Of Danny The 'Dip'", A Sexton Blake Mystery By Walter Tyler, Cover Illustration By Eric Parker (Amalgamated Press, London 1950)
Discovered a small collection of early 1950's Sexton Blake mysteries at a second hand furniture shop - they were irresistible! This particular story gets really good reviews on the Sexton Blake archive webside, http://www.sextonblake.co.uk/blakebibliography_1950.html#sbl3_208 . Eric Parker (1898-1974) illustrated most of the covers between the mid 1930's and 1950's and they are all stunning so I'll be posting some more in the next few days.
