The titles of some of the many stories written by Henry St John Cooper, who wrote under the name Mabel St John. I believe that most if not all of these were serials in cheap magazines. All were written between the mid 1910s and 1930.

  1. Henry St. John (1869-1926) was certainly a very prolific writer of both boys’ and girls’ stories. I know his girls’ stories from the story papers of the Amalgamated Press – most particularly, The Girl’s Friend. His creation, Pollie Green, was incredibly successful in the immediate pre-Great War era. The stories that appeared in these girls’ story papers were recycled in The Girls’ Friend Library, often being reprinted.

    It is sad that these stories are so little remembered now – I’m very lucky to have a number of these stories, and they are fascinating. My particular favourite of the stories penned by Mabel St John, is Jane Em’ly, which featured in the Girl’s Friend of 1911, being reprinted in the Girl’s Friend Library almost immediately (GFL No. 60, December 1911), and was reprinted after the war in No. 389, of May 1921.
