Series: Messner - Julian Messner, INC., New York

This is NOT a list of books for sale. It is a list of titles and series to use as a reference.

Julian Messner - This publishing company is not as well known as other children's history series. They were first published it the 1940's & 1950's and reprinted in various editions in the 1960's. The list of biographies is large, covering people of history who are sometimes not mentioned often. Excellent reading for approx. ages 10 & up, grades 6 & up. My daughter prefers these over Landmarks.












This book is titled Ralph J. Bunche, Fighter For Peace by J. Alvin Kugelmass, c1963 Julian Messner Inc. -- cloth cover has the "JM" logo on the front.
























This is the title page of the book pictured above -- look for the black circle with "J M", and also look for "Julian Messner, Inc." on the bottom of the title page. One other place you might find it is on the back cover and it will say "Certified Messner Edition". You'll find these in various edition with different covers: plain cloth, pictorial, and library rebound.
