THIS PAGE: No. 1 Penguin Specials S1 - S99





This series was for topical interest on contemporary political and social issues. S1 'Germany Puts the Clock Back' by Edgar Mowrer was issued in November 1937. The initial print run of 50,000 books sold out in 4 days. This series achieved very large sales figures, and since Penguin's war-time paper rationing was based on pre-war usage, this greatly helped to sustain Penguin Books during the period of the Second World War.

A total of 145 Specials were produced during the war until the end of 1945. A new series of 'Specials' returned to the shelves with the publication of S156 The Case for Communism in February 1949.

A few of the earlier books were designated 'Pelican Specials' with a blue and white cover, and some found their way into the PELICAN series marked with an 'A'. A number of others were also designated Penguin Handbooks with green covers, and then re-appeared in the newly created series of PENGUIN HANDBOOKS marked with 'PH'.
