16 Vtg Carolyn Keene Nancy Drew Mystery Stories Book Series 1930-1963

This listing is for a set of 16 vintage Nancy Drew mystery books. The copyright dates range from 1930 to 1963 and they were all published by Grosset & Dunlap. Thirteen books appear to be from the same edition or version, two are from another edition, and the last book is from yet another edition. They have wear on the covers including fading and moisture damage. We found names written inside the cover or on one of the first pages in 11 of the books. We are not book dealers or collectors, but we would say these books would be better suited for reading than collecting. This listing has no reserve price so don't miss your chance to win!

The winning bidder can also pick up this item at our store in Winooski, Vermont to save on shipping charges. All local pickups are subject to 6% Vermont state sales tax.
