The background story of how I came into possession of these amazingly wonderful Nancy Drew vintage books (not a mystery):

An associate told us about an old vacation home that had been unused for some years but still had it's contents intact. She knew that there was a collection of series books on a shelf in the house, and knowing that I collect books, thought I might be interested...

We said sure, met her there and discovered a 4 foot long shelf tucked up over the top of the stairway on the second floor hallway. Turns out the shelf contained Nancy Drew stories #1 through #38. I carefully boxed them and we went on to other things...

About three weeks later, when I got a chance to actually look at the books, I was dusting them off - they obviously had been sitting on their out-of-the-way book nook for many, many years, I discovered that the first book I grabbed had never been opened! How did I know? Have you ever been at the bookstore and picked up a book, and when you open it, you feel that tight, crispness to an "uncracked" front cover hinge - you were the first one to ever open it?

That, along with the pristine condition, was how I knew that these books were purchased, placed on that shelf - likely for a grand-daughter who turned out to not be a reader - and sat there from 1978 or '79 until I took them down off the shelf in 2017.

In any case, every book in the box ended up being that same way - unopened, just waiting to be loved someday...

Now you can!

These books will make a great gift for girls of all ages - maybe that is even you.

Enjoy.
