Pocket Book errors corrrected[edit]

Pocket Books were not invented by the publisher Pocket Books in the 1930s but at least as early as John Newbery's Pocket Books in 1744, as a popular paperback series in England, and later in America (starting 1787). I have corrected the text and put in the external link which proves that this statement is correct and allows the reader to see the actual original pocket books. I have correct the page's horrific errors.

Simon, Gallery and Pocket[edit]

As of September, 2014, it seems that Pocket is an imprint of Gallery, or at least a peer, and not the other way around, as shown in the list of imprints.

Founder of Pocket Books[edit]

According to Michael Korda's memoir Another life, Pocket Books was the idea of Robert De Graff but he got nowhere with the idea while Leon Shimkin who "wrested the idea away from him" founded Pocket Books. This is in contradiction to de Graff's obituary in NY Times which lists him de Graff as founder although they mention funding by Simon, Schuster and Shimkin. Would be helpful if someone can determine which is true. Jaldous1 (talk) 23:58, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
