Published by Howard Baker, London in 1981
Approx 200 pages.

In excellent condition with undamaged d/j.

Contains 7 complete [including covers] facsimiles of "The Gem" story paper.

In this Volume are included some of the best Charles Hamilton singles

"Besides our old favourites, Tom Merry & Co, & the inimitable Arthur Augustus D'Arcy, these stories feature such personalities as Mr Selby the irascible Third Form master, the charming & delightful Cousin Ethel, & the obnoxious "Baggy" Trimble. Trimble was the Gem's answer, as it were, to Billy Bunter of the Magnet, & readers may judge which of the two they find more unpleasant or unlovely. Then, too, we have a story featuring the Sixth Former, Rushden, & another that brings Manners to the fore. It is pleasant to have the supporting cast put into star roles once in a while, &, as always, all Hamilton's characters are most convincingly drawn."

The issues are

#773 - Trimble in Trade
#774 - Cousin Ethel To the Rescue
#795 - Trimble Tries It On
#797 - Taming a Tartar
#799 - Trimble's Auction
#805 - Rushden's Folly
#807 - Manners Holds His Own

All originally published in 1922/23
