The Gault Papers Part 4: Mundy's Omnibus Editions & Nonfiction

The fourth and final section of The Gault Papers.

As noted in the first part of “The Gault Papers,” posted previously at The PulpRack, the following information was compiled and posted to the Internet by the late R.T. "Ditch" Gault under the title "Bibliographic Information on Talbot Mundy's Tibetan, Jimgrim, and Tros Story Series." See more info about the Gault Papers at those previous posts.

The information below wraps up Gault's bibliographic material on Mundy. It appeared at the end of his other citations and comments. I've set it apart from the other sections, as its focus differs slightly from that of the other bibliographic areas he developed. By the way, the accompanying illustration comes from the Classics Illustrated edition of King of the Khyber Rifles.

S. J. R. Saunders (Toronto 1949), 187 pgs. DeVorss & Co. (1964), 182 pgs., trade pb.; early printings of the DeVorss ed. had same cover as Dakers ed. My copy of DeVorss' 6th printing (1983) lists only the copyright date for 1947. DeVorss ed. is most likely a rpt. of the British first ed.
Mundy's personal mystical philosophy.

Thus Spake the Devil, which he planned to publish under the pseudonym "Malloy Grayson." He was unable to sell it, and later completely rewrote the ms., and it is that version which was eventually published as I Say Sunrise. *(NOTE 1)
