Sampson Low, Grey Banner & Gilt Title Editions - Non Pears'

2 of the Non-Pears', Pears-Like editions are the Grey Banner and the Gilt Title editions.

These seem to be the rarest of the Pears'-Like editions.

Only 4 titles have been identified in the Grey Banner set, and 6 titles in the Gilt Title set (as of March, 2021)

The Grey Banner, has a cover identical to the Pears' Banner Edition, except the colour of the cover is NOT Red., and there is NO Pears' ad on the back cover.

The Gilt Title, has a cover identical to the Pears' Plain Editiion, except the title is printed in Gilt, and the cover MAY not be Red, and there is NO Pears' ad on the Back cover.

The Grey Banner Edition, have publication dates between 1885 and 1889.

All titles in the Gilt Title Edition, have an 1891 date.

So, although both these editions have the potential to have 39 titles, only 4 titles have been seen in each edition.

The books have many colours:
Red, Brown, Blue, Light Green, Teal, Mustard Brown, Grey.
