James Pattinson Author Biography - Information About the Author
James Pattinson was born in 1915 and died in 2009, he's listed in Hubin and what an output! I know how I feel after putting together this list of books, imagine actually writing them!?
The British Library also holds some plays written by James Pattinson but we've left these out of the bibliography, we have included all the books held by the major British reception libraries though so this should be a comprehensive list of books.
No publisher mentioned means it's Robert Hale.
As can be seen, James Pattinson, often wrote several books in a year, we've listed thes ein order of appearance in the british Library catalogue.
A number of the books were subsequently reprinted by the publisher White Lion Press.
What would a full set of first editions in dust jacket look like? If any book collector has one then they've done very well indeed.
Whilst the first edition books are not expensive they are elusive, that is to say in collectable condition.
As usual with this publisher most of James Pattinson's books went to the public library service, very few books from the already short print runs made it to bookshops.
