Merlin paperbacks

Published by Hamlyn

The first issued, M9, used the original illustrations from the Nelson edition but the other three had new illustrations by un-named artist(s).
The bright dustwrapper covers appear to be all by the same artist, who is, unfortunately, not credited.
Robbers' Trail became Robber's Trail in this edition, but only on the cover. On half-title and title page it retains the original punctuation. M9 and M10 were reprinted in 1968.

Merlin also produced two of the popular Kemlo series in 1968. These have high quality cover artwork, once more uncredited, and use the original internal illustrations from the Nelson hardback editions.
