TV Tie-in Annuals

A friend was asking about one of the TV-based Western annuals published by Purnell that appeared in the early 1960s and it seemed like a good opportunity to see if I could list as many as I could.

So, the following listing covers books by Adprint, Purnell, Dean and Daily Mirror. I'm not promising this is a complete listing but I think it's reasonable. I've not included World Distributors in this list as that would make it huge. That's one for another day!
