African Library

The Penguin African Library began in 1962 and ran until the mid-seventies. The majority of the titles are designed with the Marber grid, with a heavy brown headline, although some of the later titles from 1972 on lose the grid and move toward a white background. The prefix for this series is “AP”. Note: certain numbers (AP4, AP38, AP43, and AP45) were never issued.
