But, of course, ask nicely first


Roger the Ranger. by EF Pollard. SW Partridge & co. nd (‘first published in 1893 and frequently reprinted’, this copy is 20s or 30s.)

No-one seems to call their children Roger any more. I can’t imagine why. It used to be such a popular name.

This copy was presented by the Police Welfare League, according to the flyleaf. Even if there still is one of those, I’ll bet they don’t give away Improving Literature.
