A Dennis Wheatly and a Mysterious Britain

A couple of recent finds.  Mysterious Britain from a lovely bookshop 
in Winchester.
The Dennis Wheatly book was being thrown out and was sitting on top of a bin with some other books.

The Edge of Running Water...

Not my own scan, but I couldn't resist re-posting the spectacularly sinister cover for this 1967 edition of Willian Sloane's 1939 novel, via Too Much Horror Fiction.

Definite 'Blood on Satan's Claw' vibes.

(Some great galleries of other gothic horror paperback artwork available on the same blog here and here.)

Everybody's Family Doctor

Book and magazine cover designs - possibly from the late 1940s - possibly examples from an illustrator's portfolio.  They are hand painted and air brushed or printed onto paper and signed by the artist - Stanley Payne. They are approx 19 x 22 cm in size.
