we've included published dates when given by the major reception libraries and publisher when we are certain of the fact.

Ricky Drayton books are rare and collectable, none of the books listed in this bibliography are easy to find.
The artwork is as attractive to collectors, ourselves included, as you'd imagine, this and their fragile nature explains why they are rarely found for sale, even online.
