The Saint (Detective/Mystery) Magazine (UK)

Total Issues: 60+80=140

The first series (1954 - 1959) is unusual because it is actually "published" in Australia for distribution in the UK. It appears that most of the issues are identical to the issues of The Saint Detective Magazine (Australia) except that the issues are dated two months later (to allow for shipment to the UK, the volume numbering is changed to match the policy of the UK distributor, the covers are overprinted with "British Edition" (and the new date and UK price) and there are minor textual changes to the wording on the Table of Contents.

Note that the last two issues in the Australian series were not reprinted in the British series, although most of the contents appeared in later issues.

Initially a reprint of the US edition (with variant contents) but later published original material.
