All of them, except Pioneer Air Fighter, I was never really looking for that one as it has the same stories as the early books.

Well, not really 'of course' - both were done as hardbacks as well, which is what I have.

According to James there were two printings of the hardback, both in 1970. I've got both hb & 1st ed paperback - the only Biggles book that this happened with.

My Dark Intruder is a 1967 Knight P/B and it states inside that it's a first edition of the story in any form! So, I'm wondering too, OzB :?

I'm missing In France, School, Presses On, Mexico, Leopards of Zinn, Poor Rich Boy, Syndicate, Millionaire, Bull, Deep Blue Sea, Sees Too Much, Homework, and Air Ace.

Thanks SS, I did not realise NW had done hardbacks of Air Ace & Homework, I think I got all his early non-Biggles stories, & then did not purchase anymore [other than Air Ace & Homework]. All mine are softbacks, except Mossyface, which I am guessing is NW's 1st effort from 1994. [wow, 20 yrs ago now!]

So, maybe if the Dark Intruder hardback had two printings, it is considered easier to get compared to some others? I very rarely see this one come up in HB on eBay, though I am assured they are out there.

P.S. Just found a 1974 '1st edition thus' of Dark Intruder [never heard of this one], printed as an 'education booklet'. Wonder if this was in a school library until Biggles became unpopular & 'un-PC' in the mid-70's?

Biggles In France should an easy one to 'remedy' RSG...it's one of the Red Fox paperbacks with all the original text intact. I am thinking that the original In France was the 1935 BFL edition, & never reprinted again until 1993 by Red Fox [my edition], with some reprints now available.

It is, OzB. I have one of the new ones pre-ordered from Amazon due out in May but I believe the current ones are easily available.

The original In France was published for the first time inn the BFL edition and unfortunately, although it is possible to get copies, they are very expensive because it is so difficult to find one. It is a wonder the BFL editions survive at all really - they are so fragile, and held together by staples which tend to go rusty. The BFL library editions sadly don't include the Modern Boy illustrations though. The other hard-to-get one is Learns to Fly. The others come up on ebay from time to time and are much less expensive.

Yes, I don't think I'll be going out anytime soon & mortgaging the house to pay for the BFL's plus that other 'Desert Night' WEJ title that was for sale a while ago on eBay for US$8,800...phew!

They are very fragile as you say...I have a couple of BFL's from another 1930's aviation author & I am always afraid when I take them out of the plastic sleeves, that they will disintegrate in my hands.

:o
I really need to get purchasing! Now, I only have about 20 (which, like Soppy, I keep in my closet). Come September, I am so going to buy up the old book shops... :roll:

I wonder how much money altogether has been spent on Biggles across the forum? :lol:

OzBiggles1963 wrote:Biggles In France should an easy one to 'remedy' RSG...it's one of the Red Fox paperbacks with all the original text intact. I am thinking that the original In France was the 1935 BFL edition, & never reprinted again until 1993 by Red Fox [my edition], with some reprints now available.

Yep - sorting that one out right now :lol: Sometimes I just need to get my act together and grab ten minutes to cruise Amazon and place my orders :yay: I lost a bid on School on eBay a couple of weeks ago but will have another go. I'm confident of tracking down the few I'm missing except for Homework and Air Ace. And I do have all except the latter in electronic editions.

Thanks for reminding me, RSG. I have updated mine as well.

You should be able to get a copy of "in France" pretty cheaply if you are okay with a paperback.

The only ones I don't own are:

Deep Blue Sea
Homework
Air Ace

I did own Deep Blue Sea and sold it on EBay at a huge profit. :) (picked it up once in a garage sale for 20 cents (New Zealand dollars).
