PENGUIN HANDBOOKS



Penguin Handbooks PH1 - PH99
Penguin Handbooks PH100 - PH 170



THIS PAGE - PH1 to PH99






The term A PENGUIN HANDBOOK was first used with some of the books in the PENGUIN SPECIALS series. The First such book was Penguin Special S101 Keeping Poultry and Rabbits on Scraps , by Alan Thompson and Claude H. Goodchild which was published on 26 January 1942. There were 10 such books produced during the war-time in the Penguin Special Series. They were also intended to help with the war-effort, enabling the population - those with gardens, access to allotments etc. to make better use of the land - assisting those who had responded to the 'Dig For Victory' campaign. The books bore green covers, and the design was initially retained in the new Handbook series.

Most of the ealy Handbooks produced as 'Specials' migrated later to populate the new Penguin Handbook series: S119 became PH1, S132 became PH2 etc. The first 'original' Handbook (not first published as a 'Special') was PH9 The Penguin Handyman published in November 1945.

The series was successful with over 700 books published, popular were the flower/gardening books and cookery books.
