In the 1950s, the authorities attempted a crack-down on allegedly obscene pulp literature, targeting the Janson books among others.Several of the Hank Janson novels were banned in the Republic of Ireland.

1) Revolt special by Hank Janson published in London by Alexander Moring in 1958. Soft cover in very good condition. Free from inscriptions.
2) Kill this Man by Hank Janson published in London by Alexander Moring in 1958. Soft cover in very good condition. Free from inscriptions.

Hank Janson is both a fictional character and a pseudonym created by the English author Stephen Daniel Frances who died in 1989. Frances wrote a series of thrillers by, and often featuring, Hank Janson, beginning with When Dames Get Tough (1946). The Janson character in the novels was portrayed as a "tough Chicago reporter". Alternatively, in some of the novels, Janson is said to have been born in England, to have left the country in his teens, later obtaining American nationality and working as an assistant to a private detective.

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
