Privileged Order Certificate (POC), Greyfriars Press Bond (GPB) and The Greyfriars Gazette
The POC was a pre-publication order form sent out by HB to those who responded to his initial advertising for the facsimiles. If you paid up front for 7 books you received FREE post and packing. Initial publication date was from August, 1971. The GPB replaced the POC. The number of books in each lot varied over the years. The Greyfriars Gazette (GG) was sent out FREE to those who subscribed to the POC/GBP; there were at least 50 issues of the GG. Corrections to the foregoing would be appreciated
