The Hotspur Book for Boys Synopsis
The Hotspur Book for Boys was a British annual published by DC Thomson that came out in September before the year on the cover, in time for being bought as Christmas presents by parents and grandparents, and forward dated so it wouldn’t appear ‘old’ when opened on Christmas Day.
The first Hotspur Book for Boys was released in 1934, and an annual followed each year until World War II and resulting paper shortages caused the annuals to go into hiatus; after the annual released in 1940, the series skipped a year, returned in 1942, then vanished again until 1948, This ninth Book for Boys proved to be the final release in the original run.
In 1965, the Hotspur Book for Boys resumed annual publication. Twenty-nine annuals were released before the line again ended, in 1991.
