Anthony Rolls Author Biography - Information About the Author
Anthony Rolls is a pseudonym of Colwyn Edward Vulliamy, born 1886 and died 1971, Anthony Rolls is included in Hubin.
These books are rare in dust jacket. Book collectors should be aware that books priced, for example, 2/6 on the spine are reprints, there may well be no mention of reprint in the book however, all firsts should be priced 7/6 on the inside front flap.
Geoffrey Bles usually used a reddish cloth for their first editions, this often changed for the cheaper editions, once again reprints are not always mentioned as the same textblocks were used. To be sure of a true first you need a book with a 7/6 jacket that's always been on the book.
Needless to say copies are rare and sought after by crime fiction collectors.
