Biggles Antiquarian & Collectable Books
Some books never really get old, and the Biggles fiction story collection (alongside the Mr. Men and Little Miss books) is one of those evergreen stories for many book lovers. Biggles first made his appearance to the world in 1932, and continued to shine on until the author of the collection, W.E. Johns, passed away in 1968. The complete Biggles book collection has almost 100 books in it. The tone of the collection is generally quite lighthearted to cater to a large part of the reader group, children.
Why Are the Biggles Books Such Popular Collectables?
The story of Biggles, a pilot and adventurer, captured the hearts of many during the time of publication, and thus holds a lot of sentimental value. Several rarer titles also never came out in paperback, making them even more valuable. Beyond that, the themes in the story, including bravery, friendship, and perseverance, are still very relevant decades after publication.
How Popular Were The Biggles Books?
These collectable books were popular enough to later give way to a movie, a TV series, a video game, and comics in many different languages. The books themselves got a wide range of new translations, and thus have readers worldwide.
