National Books !

National Books were published in Toledo, Ohio in 1950. I only have two copies and have seen another (but must be more) and they seem to reprint artwork from Stork Novels and Knickerbocker.
The cover art is very crude and all copies seem to have this polka dot background and the two that I own are produced on inferior paper.

Unfortunately there are no numbers to be found on any book and only a 1950 date in the 'Soul Of Passion' copy.

I have also added the covers they reprinted from the USA originals.

If any one has any more info on this book company then please let me know.
