What a treat for us today! The latest acquisitions for the Westerman collection turned up in the post. It was spotted for us by Nigel, the hawk-eyed fan of Westerman, long-term supporter of the Research Collections and author of Westerman Yarns. We knew we could expect some good material in the parcel.
On opening it, we found it contained a copy of The Wireless Officer, published in 1922. An excellent yarn, this edition is in good condition, although sadly missing 3 of its illustrations. Still, it all adds to the collection and we are delighted to receive it.
The big treat was an issue of Chums magazine, 1933-1934, in which was published a serial by Westerman entitled ‘The Red Pirate’. This is a new story for our collection and we are looking forward to reading it. Here are some pictures to keep you going!
