Leslie Purnell Davies was born in 1914 and is a pseudonym of Leslie Vardre.
The author is feaytured in Hubin but we've listed all of Davies' books that are in the British Library catalogue so this shoulod be a complete list of first edition books in order.
The Hubin listings are obviously crime fiction books, hence inclusion on this site, many listed above are Science Fiction novels though.
The books are collectable in dust jacket, both the crime/thriller novels and the Sci Fi books.
The books were published in America, usually by Doubleday, British editions generally precede though not in all cases.
Collectors will find the British editions considerably harder to find than their American counterparts.
