    Five-in-One Schoolboys    (about)
    Bound remainders of issues of Schoolboys’ Pocket Library, published by Gerald G. Swan in the 1950s.



    Five-in-One Schoolgirls    (about)
    Bound remainders of issues of Schoolgirls’ Pocket Library, published by Gerald G. Swan in the 1950s.



    The Flag Library for Boys    (about)
    Short-lived series from Newnes which was launched in October 1935. It is thought that four issues were published per month (although other sources state 2 per month) and the dates below should be considered provisional; certainly the British Library date all 12 issues as being published in 1935.














    Football Pocket Library    (about)
    Each issue contained a 35,000 word story. Note: reported (by Gifford) to have run to 10 issues (1947-48), but only two have been traced to date.
