Today, we continue to take a look at Trojan Books. I've found very little information about them, which is surprising, given the breadth of their output. The earliest book I could verify is 1971 and the latest 1977.
Published by GX, Incorporated of Chatsworth, CA, Trojan Classics have a small Trojan helmet in the upper left and a mask of Zorro in the upper right, in reference to their distribution company; Zorro Distributing Company of San Diego, CA. Their imprints included: Trojan Classics, Locker Room Library, Golden Helmet Classics, Spartan Classics, Gay Way, Svensk Series and Zorro Books.
The covers are all black ink/pencil drawings presented on solid color backgrounds.
Covers are presented in order of publication, based on their sequential numbering system and the list published in the back of one of Trojan Classic's titles. This was the primary way in which adult publishing companies were able to survive. The lists at the back of the books came with directions on how to order additional titles, and these mail order sales helped keep the company afloat.
