    Boys’ Ace Library    (about)
    Publisher: C. Arthur Pearson.
    Run: 22 Feb 1936-24 Apr 1937 (24 issues).
    Frequency: 2 per month.

    Short-lived pocket library series from C. Arthur Pearson. Some problems exist with the dating with both Lofts and Gifford stating that the series ran from 1936-37; Gifford expands the details further by giving a run between 22 Feb 1936-24 April 1937, with 2 issues published per month. The British Library, however, date the first 12 issues as 1935 and the latter issues as 1937, indicating that the series may have had a break in its run. Two of the most prolific authors for the library, Reginald G. Thomas and J.H. Stein shared an office in Bouverie Street at the time.
