Ward, Lock (WAR)

Warwick House, Salisbury Square, London, EC4

Ward, Lock were a prolific publisher of novels, many by famous novelists of the time, such as Edgar Wallace and E. Philips Oppenheim. Blampied's brother-in-law, Salomon van Abbé designed at least 250 dust jackets or wrappers for this company. I have found three jackets designed by Blampied, two of them for novels written by William Le Queux, all first published in 1922 according to the British Library catalogue. Two are signed indistinctly, but have a characteristic style. There may well be more titles.
