These last two Midwood sales in the notebook, four months after the last known Midwood Raders, are a complete mystery to me. By this time Midwood was using text covers with occasional photo covers. Please let me know if you can solve this mystery.

There are 15 Bee-Lines with covers recycled from Midwoods. Only a couple of them are listed like this in the notebooks.

This listing appears between #311 & #B-312, there is no notebook number with this listing.

Although the book appeared in 1967, it is not found in Rader's notebooks until Sept 1969.


B-312. December 1969 – Bee-Line Books “Three For All”. $300.

Bee-Line 433 – 3-FOR-ALL by Masters, 1970. Thanks to Herschel Fink.

After assigning no number to GRAND SLAM GIRL, Rader adds a B (for Bee-Line) in front of his final nine notebook entries. Bee-Line was his last commercial employer.

B-313. January 1970 – Bee-Line Books 435-Z “Swinging Couples Wanted”

This book turned up on eBay, but it has a photo cover. Rader has the right title and book number, but the published book does not have a Rader cover. Bee-Line may have decided to go with a photo cover late in the publication process. IF Bee-line did not use the art for this book here, it seems likely that they must have used it on a later book. There must be a different Bee-line out there with the Rader cover originally painted for SWINGING COUPLES WANTED.
