Welcome to Girls Gone By Publishers
Our last working day before Christmas will be Monday 16 December. All orders for books to be sent out must be received here by 9.00 that morning. This means that orders coming by post must arrive by Saturday 14 December. We shall not be looking at emails or answering mail during the time of our break (obviously completely busy church-wise until after Christmas Day). We shall be opening again on Monday 6th January.
Please scroll down the page, and sign up for the Friday email. This is normally sent every Friday, and gives up-to-date news of where we are with Forthcoming titles, as well as thinking about future titles.
Girls Gone By Publishers re-publishes some of the most popular fiction from the twentieth century, concentrating on those titles which are most sought after, and difficult to find on the second-hand market.
We use the complete and unabridged text from first editions (except in very rare cases when we cannot find a first edition), together with all the illustrations. All of our books come with at least one introduction by an ‘expert’ in the field, and with a publishing history which includes illustrations of all editions (these often make fascinating reading).
Our aim is to make these books available at affordable prices, and to make ownership possible not only for existing collectors but also for new collectors so that the survival of the books is continued.
In addition, we publish Chalet School fill-in titles. These are edited to a very high standard, and our aim is to make each one so that it could have been written by Elinor Brent-Dyer. You will find these both under their own authors, and also under Chalet School Titles.
We also have a programme of non fiction titles related to the genre. These are larger in format, and include a lot of black-and-white illustrations.
