The first impression runs show an increase after the first three (2000 each for SA, SD & PD) to WH (5000). Then a drop to CC (4000). Then PP and subsequent titles show steady increases; to 44,500 for GN? Did Cape expect CC set in the Broads to sell fewer copies, or did they have a shorter first run for CC to meet a Christmas deadline? And how many were first published in November or December for the Christmas market (aunts and grandparents etc?).
ARís autobiography or Broganís biography say I think that AR felt that after PP he thought he could rely on the series for a steady income (despite the first impression being only 2000). I suppose by that time the first two books SA & SD were being reprinted
