The first ten Penguin Books were published in July 1935 and sold for 6d.(six pence) each. That translates into 2.5 pence in our current money. By 30 July 1954 Penguin had published book Number 1,000. The first three thousand Main Series books are listed.

Penguin used colours to signify different types of book. Fiction were in Orange covers; Biography in Dark Blue; Crime (or detection) in Green; Travel and Adventure in Cerise, Plays in Red, and Miscellaneous in Yellow. Later Penguins published Essays and Belles Lettres in a Light Purple and World Affairs in Grey. Penguin also began with a 'History' category [see No. 31] however, since this was 'non-fiction' they went on to publsh such titles in the Pelican series.


Cover Colours are as follows:
Orange = General Fiction (F)
Green = Mystery and Crime (C)
Cerise = Travel and Adventure (T)
Dark Blue = Biography (B)
Grey = World Affairs (W)
Violet = Essays and Belles Lettres (E)
Red = Plays (P)
Yellow = Miscellaneous Penguins (M)
