This (if it's what I think it is--I haven't unpacked all my books yet, so can't check) is a nice, large format book with glossy paper and lots of cover art.

A smaller book of pulp history (easier to conceal when the boss is on the prowl) is Don Hutchinson's _The Great Pulp Heroes_. B&W illustrations and cover shots.

We have moved, however, from the specific (hb) to the general (pulp).
