R.R. Ryan Author Biography - Information About the Author
Rachel R. Ryan, possibly a pseudonym of Evelyn Bradley, is a Hubin listed author.
Rachel Ryan is an author unknown to most but to those aware of her books R.R. Ryan is extremely collectable.
These books are rare, even without dust jackets, in dust jackets . . . well, don't hold your breath waiting for them !
This bibliography is ordered as the books appear in the British Library catalogue when more than one book is published in the same year.
UK first editions of the novels should be priced 7/6 on the spine of the dustwrapper, anything less, i.e. 3/6 is a reprint although the book itself will almost certainly appear to be a first edtion, in fact it is, they were all printed at the same time.
The jackets have superb artwork, as you'd expect from this publisher during this period. The books will have orange cloth boards with black lettering and ruled lines.
They were not contemporaneously published in America, some recently reprinted by Ramble House.
