Here is some detail regarding an esoteric piece for Maigret and Simenon enthusiasts to read. The work apparently reports on the history of Maigret publications by Penguin, Simenon’s primary UK publisher for the past 60 years. It contains bibliographies and covers of the 127 books appearing between 1945 and 2007. A
guide to other Simenon and Maigret works is included. It is introduced by Julian Barnes and edited by James Mackay.
Incidentally, the producer of this book is The Penguin Collectors Society. Founded originally in England in 1973, it has over 500 worldwide members now. Notably, collecting Penguin books is NOT required of members. The book was published in December 2015. It is 112 pages. It includes 148 illustrations. It costs £8.00.
