        Collection of Six Ben and Bella titles.

      Melbourne: Murfett, n.d., circa 1947-1951. A very scarce set of six volumes of the Ben and Bella series, each in first edition. Peg Maltby (1899-1984) worked in England as an illustrator of chocolate-box lids, before emigrating to Melbourne where she held successful exhibitions of her watercolours in the 1930s and 1940s. Her talent as a flower painter caught the eye of the publishers Murfetts who commissioned fifteen paintings of fairies and gypsies in woodland settings, which became her first book, Peg's Fairy Book. This work was overwhelmingly successful, selling 180,000 copies in five editions. She followed this success with the Pip and Pepita series, and then Ben and Bella. The titles in this collection are: Ben and Bella Down on the Farm; Ben and Bella in the Clouds; Ben and Bella in the Hills; Ben and Bella and the Apple Tree; Ben and Bella in the Gardens; and Forever Cuckoo! Six works, folio, illustrations; near fine in original coloured wrappers, preserved in a folding cloth box.

        Captain Video No. 1 / . . . and the Secret of Sun City / A Monthly Publication / 36 Page Comic / Directly from Television! / The Famous Dumont Television Star / Greatest Adventure Hero of Them All! / In a Comic magazine of His Own

      A Fawcett Production / British Edition by L. Miller & Son Ltd., London 1951 - This is Captain Video No. 1, "The Secret of Sun City . . . Directly from Television!" copyright 1950 by Fawcett Publications Inc, in the U.S., but this is the U.K. edition, "published & distributed by L. Miller & Son, Ltd.," London. Notable as one of the few British comic books of the era to feature color on the inside pages, though in truth only 15 of the interior pages here are in color -- each color double-spread seems to alternate with a pair of B&W pages -- and THAT color is a bit limited, apparently created by applying red and blue screens but NOT full, four-ink process color. A short-lived title, it appears only six numbers were issued. Original cover price "9d." (It would drop to 6d for the later, mostly B&W issues.) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
