Prion Lost Treasures


Issued by the now-defunct Prion Books, Ltd., Prion Lost Treasures was an intriguing series of reissues, ranging from works of military history to three novels by the Hungarian writer, Lajos Zilahy, to Burgo Partridge’s A History of Orgies. Although Prion has been taken over by Carlton Books, many of the titles are still available from Amazon and other booksellers.
