Elbur Ford Author Biography - Information About the Author
Elbur Ford is a pseudonym of Eleanor Burford Hibbert, born 1906 and died 1993, the author is in Hubin's crime and mystery fiction guide.
The author is probably best known for the books written under the names Jean Plaidy and Victoria Holt.
The Elbur Ford books are rare, genuinely rare, they must have had very small print runs as otherwise they are unaccountably scarce, especially given the period they were published.
I can't recall us ever handling a first edition book in jacket.
Readers are in as much trouble as collectors as I can find no record in the British Library of reprints or paperback editions.
