Paperbacks - American

Pocket Books introduced the mass market paperback in the US in 1939.  (At least one other publisher, Penguin,  had preceded them in England.)

The new format caught on, and today, collectors prize these books for their artwork and content, much of which was original by the 1950's.  There are many collectors who collect in this format, trying to get complete runs by various publishers.
