Paperback. PENGUIN SPECIALS. This series was for topical interest on contemporary political and social issues. S1 'Germany Puts the Clock Back' by Edgar Mowrer was issued in November 1937. The initial print run of 50,000 books sold out in 4 days. This series achieved very large sales figures, and since Penguin's war-time paper rationing was based on pre-war usage, this greatly helped to sustain Penguin Books during the period of the Second World War. A total of 145 Specials were produced during the war until the end of 1945. A new series of 'Specials' returned to the shelves with the publication of S156The Case for Communism in February 1949. A few of the earlier books were designated 'Pelican Specials' with a blue and white cover, and some found their way into the PELICAN series marked with an 'A'. A number of others were also designated Penguin Handbooks with green covers, and then re-appeared in the newly created series of PENGUIN HANDBOOKS marked with 'PH'-from the Penguin collectors website.

paperback. 'When the first Pelicans were published the intention behind them was to provide the serious general reader with authoritative books on a wide range of intellectual interests. There was at the time no deliberate design of building a library of modern knowledge at a modest cost. Nevertheless, Pelicans have, in fact, become such a library: and one serving, moreover, not only the general reader of serious purpose, but also the great body of students pursuing courses in the Universities and institutions of higher education generally.'
