ya cant judge a book by its cover. unless it's got 318 of 'em then maybe you can make a geneeral determination.

Remarkable to me how many I've seen, one way or another. The only one I made of point of seeking out was the Airmont, along with Avalon the non-magazine source of income for Robert Lowndes while he was doing the Health Knowledge fiction titles and reputed nf EXPLORING THE UNKNOWN. My first DRACULA was the Airmont (with the nice RAWL intro), and they were still being dug out of warehouses for remainder sale as late as the 1990s...wonder when they went belly-up.

I don't know when Airmont folded. An interesting little house, though. The books still turn up on eBay all the time.

And not a GGA in the lot. That's incredible.

Of the Finnish two (or maybe three) editions there's only the latest:

It's quite nice, retro-style, sligthly pulpish - take a look, if you didn't spot it already. I'd send the covers, but my copy is jacketless.

Yes, that's a nice one.
