E.P.Thorne Biography - Information About the Author
Ernest Pollett Thorne possibly born 1896 re an ancestry site.
All books published by Wright & Brown, some using the full name "Ernest Pollett Thorne" but most under EP Thorne.
These books are worth collecting for the dust jackets alone, especially the early to 1950s titles, 1960s still good but they don't have quite the artistic merit and imgaination of the earlier books, in our humble opinion.
Books in jackets for the collector are not easy to find, most seem to be ex-library copies when they do turn up, in our experience.
Personally, I'd be prepared to collect the earlier titles in jacket from public libraries provided they were priced accordingly, the jackets are worth it and you may not get another chance, if you do then upgrade.
