The Union Jack Library [1888]

Total Issues: 12

Lofts states "It is believed to have been published weekly," but Gifford gives monthly. "Small pocket size which portrayed on its cover a soldier on one side, a sailor on the other, with a Union Jack spread across the top. Very bloodthirsty stories published. The numbering was very crude, as some copies were numbered one number on the cover and a different one inside. (e.g. issue 3 has No.6 on the cover)." (W.O.G. Lofts)

The Union Jack Library [1894]

Total Issues: 494+1531=2025

Best known as the home of Sexton Blake (the character had had first appeared in The Halfpenny Marvel, 1893, then was moved over to The Union Jack in 1894). Contained complete stories of 36-40,000 words. Early covers were by H.M. Lewis, well served by the introduction of colour covers in the early 1920s, although it was not long before Blake's best artist, Eric R. Parker came on the scene. The Detective Supplement was introduced around 1921, some 12,000 words of material (the lead story was at that time around 25-30,000 words).
