    Lilliput [v37 #3 (#219), September 1955] (2/-, 80pp, octavo, cover by Victoria, [?])
    The letter column includes responses by Patrick Moore and Francis Wykes to Solon’s article about whether we have landed on the Moon.


    Lilliput [v37 #4 (#220), October 1955] (2/-, 88pp, octavo, cover by Victoria, [?])
    This issue 88 pages the extra given over to adverts. Jack Hargreaves’s name vanishes as Managing Editor, though the others remain in their roles. The fashion pages (70-71) are photographed by “Ken Russell”. I wonder!


    Lilliput [v37 #5 (#221), November 1955] (2/-, 80pp, octavo, cover photo)
    From this issue the cover paintings change to glamour photos. Internally there are now many full colour illustrations rather than two-tone. Also the editorial names all vanish. This may be when William Richardson became editor.
