Nancy Drew Flying Saucer DJ and Adventure Girls Boxed Set

 ***This is my 1000th post.  Woo-hoo!***

I purchased this Adventure Girls Saalfield boxed set recently.  Normally, I have no use for Saalfield books because they have pulp paper.  I always make an exception when they come in a nice vintage Saalfield box.






This is my fourth Saalfield boxed set.  All four boxes are different in either color or design.


I also upgraded my copy of Nancy Drew #58, The Flying Saucer Mystery, in the Wanderer hardcover edition with dust jacket.  My old book is at the top, and my new book is at the bottom.


Neither book is a library discard.  My old book is the first printing, but the back panel of the jacket has damage.  My new book is the third printing and is in better condition.  While I would rather have a first printing, I also want to have an extremely nice copy.  I had decided previously that condition is more important than the printing, so I will keep my new third printing book.

Congratulations on your 1000th post! Well done! I have never seen any sets like these. Now I am intrigued. Hope you are where you are warm! It's very cold, even here in GA!

Congrats on your 1000th post. I love your blog.

I haven't seen any of those books either and I didn't even know "Flying Saucer" came in a hardcover, let alone with a DJ.
