10301 ANDREA DELMONICO (aka EULA ATWOOD MORRISON) Chateau Chaumond (cover by Charles Copeland; c.1968; nd; later printing; ACE Gothic Novel)

10302 ANDREA DELMONICO (aka EULA ATWOOD MORRISON) Chateau Chaumond (c.1968; nd; 2nd ACE printing; ACE Gothic Novel)

Chateau Chaumond was originally published as ACE G-744 (1968). Note that the ACE 10302 edition uses the same cover art as ACE G-744 and that the letter-number-price block on the front shows what I consider a remarking and reuse of existing stock.

10445-2 NANCY BLUE WYNNE An Agatha Christie Chronology (1976; 1st thus; books and reference)

An Agatha Christie reference. Contains a listing of all published novels, short stories, and collections. Includes plot outlines of "Murder on the Oriental Express" as well as "all major and lesser known works." I have also included this on the ACE Mystery Singles page.

10471 SAM BOWIE (aka W. T. BALLARD) Chisum (c.1951, 1970; 1st thus; photo cover)

One of those "after-the-movie" books. Based upon a screenplay by Andrew J. Fenady and novelization by Sam Bowie, this volume uses photographs from the Warner Bros. film on the front and rear cover.

10475 ADELE DE LEEUW A Choice of Angels (original title: Dr. Ellen; c.1962; 1973; 2nd ACE printing; ACE Nurse Romance)

Another of the new line of ACE Romances - called "An Adult Romance for the Modern Woman." I actually think this might fall under the "Nurse Romance" genre.

Dr. Ellen was originally published in ACE F-163 (1962).

12406 WILLIAM JOHNSTON Welcome Back, Kotter: The Sweathog Trail, #1 (1976; 1st; ACE Tempo edition; photo cover)

Another television tie-in novelization. Photo cover of cast from show on front. Not quite certain about the proper format for the title. Also note that the ACE Tempo editions use of the five-digit numerical series puts this title in the wrong (alphabetical) sequence.

13580-3 BARRY SADLER Casca: The Damned (1982, 1st ACE printing; ACE Charter edition)

Listed as #7 of this series. This is a form of historical fiction, somewhat along the lines of the stories by S. M. Stirling and others. However, it appears to follow the exploits of the "Eternal Mercenary" throughout the past. Not really science fiction, per se. Thus its location in the POTPOURRI section.

Note the double use of the ACE letter-number series 14182. This is an example of ACE Books not keeping to the series numbering notation. The other issue is that this copy has the 'white-out' and renumbering that suggests this is the 2nd ACE printing.

Interior illustration by Jack Gaughan (same as in the ACE K-243 edition).

14185-4 DOROTHY EDEN (aka DOROTHY ENID EDEN) The Deadly Travellers (c.1959, 1966; 1967; nd; ACE Gothic Mystery)

14256 (SIR) WALTER SCOTT Letters on Demonology & Witchcraft (c.1950; March 1970; 1st ACE printing; listed as "Printed for the First Time in this Century!")

14256 (back cover)

In answer to my request for information on this title, I have been rewarded (thank you May). The complete title for this volume is Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft, Addressed to J. G. Lockhart by Sir Walter Scott, Bart. The ACE Image Library user also sent along additional information.

The title at the end of Sir Walter Scott's name is Bart. "Bart." means baronet, which is the lowest rank of nobility, but one grade up from a knight. Both are called "Sir." These "letters" are epistolary lectures on the theory and practice and demonology and witchcraft. Scott was an expert in matters arcane and occult, as well as in the more mundane mediaeval history of Europe and the Middle East. Lastly, the blurb on page 1 ends with "It is with great pride that Ace Publishing Corporation presents this new edition, which follows word for word the original text." The text includes Scott's chapter headings, and footnotes but has no index.

Now all I have to do is find a copy (keep your eyes open). Update: 04 August 2013 - found a copy (yeah, a bit beat up but still an ACE).
