O’Nair (Mairi, pseud. Constance May Evans) Peggy Paradine.


House Agent
London, Mills & Boon, 1935.

First edition. 8vo. Original green cloth blocked in black. Dust-jacket, priced 2/6.

From a publishing POV at the minimum, Evans is an interesting author, one of a select few that canny publishers Mills & Boon convinced to adopt at least one pen-name to increase their “representability” via libraries such as Boots and W.H. Smith, who would normally only represent no more than two books by any author a year. Evans wrote over 120 novels for Mills & Boon, at a fairly high standard, under her own name and her “nom de guerres”.
