Emanuel Haldeman-Julius : Pocket Series and the Little Blue Books

Front Wrapper Design Style: "Late Conventional"

Identical to the Conventional wrapper design except that the Series Editor Statement has been removed. This change occurred shortly after Henry Haldeman assumed control of the publishing enterprise, following the death of his father, Emanuel Haldeman-Julius, in 1951. It should be noted, however, that the Late Conventional design did not immediately and completely replace the Conventional design. Examples can be found of wrappers which continue to bear the Series Editor Statement, yet can be determined by other factors to have originated during Henry's time. This wrapper remainder in circulation until the plant was destroyed by fire in 1978, making booklet dating by front wrapper style alone impossible.
