King Penguin Books - A Complete Descriptive List - 1950. 

A 16 page (20 pages if you count the cover) marketing pamphlet intended to promote the sale of King Penguins. It includes the inserted, loose, order form that customers could pass to their local bookshop. It lacks the, loosely inserted, coloured sample page found in some copies.

6 pages explain the genesis and intentions of King Penguins, and the self-imposed constraints (mainly about the quality of illustrations). It then lists and describes the books in print in 1950 and planned for 1951, and lists those out of print.

Some very slight foxing. Rusty staples.

No inscription.

The photographs form part of this description.
