C Daly King Biography
Charles Daly King was born in 1895 and died in 1963.
His books are often referred to as the rarest Collins Crime Club books.
This is incorrect, most books around this period from this publisher are just as rare.
Indeed, in our experience some more so, many remain unseen by dealers and collectors, unlike those above.
