Nancy Drew RARE COMPLETE SET Vintage PC Books 1-38

Up for your consideration is a SUPER RARE set of vintage matte picture cover Nancy Drew books 1-38 ALL with blue and white endpapers less the elusive #7 which is extremely scarce. This set includes many of the hard to find editions such as Missing Map and Broken Locket. Many sets similar to this have been offered but they almost always DO NOT include these books! The Diary I have included is still a very early picture cover edition. Only books 1-38 ever featured blue and white endpapers and these become more scarce, and more valuable every year.

Per : "

Since #1-4 and #6 were already revised down to 20 chapters before the picture cover format began, these books do not exist in the picture cover format with the original 25 chapter text. #7 was printed in the picture cover format with the original 25 chapter text for just one printing, so it is a bit difficult to find. Nearly all picture cover editions of #7 that come up for sale have the revised 1962 text. The only books that were ever printed in the picture cover format with the original 25 chapter text are #5 and #7-34. #35-56 all have 20 chapter texts, and remember that none of #35-56 were ever printed with 25 chapter texts.

Some people believe that the picture covers that have the blue multi endpapers will always have the original text. This is not necessarily true. Early picture cover printings of #1-4 and 6 have blue multi endpapers but the revised 20 chapter text. Additionally, early picture cover printings of #35-38 have the blue multi endpapers but those titles never had 25 chapter texts."

Other than the scarce #7 all of the books in this set that were printed in picture cover format with original text are included. A Nancy Drew set like this would take many years and many dollars to complete. These books vary in condition from good minus to near fine condition. The books may have sticker remnants, average wear for their age and writing or names. Some have more wear than others on the outside but keep in mind these are more than 40 years old and the original of the picture covers. Please note some of the original picture covers were NEVER printed with original text. This set is as close as you can get to original in the picture cover editions. Many list to Fire Dragon, almost all have original text and cover art. I have included many pictures so you know exactly what you are getting with no surprises!
