    TRIXIE BELDEN: THE GATEHOUSE MYSTERY, #3.

    Racine, WI: Whitman, (c. 1977.). The format used for the most titles in the series - from #1-34.

    Edition: Hardcover - first thus.

    New York: Golden Press, (1959.) dj. Hardcover - Uncommon edition with the diamond-spine dust jacket by Herbert Tauss. The dustjacket has a synopsis on front flap, price of $1.00, and the 1959 date. The rear flap 'about the author' and 'about the artist', illustrator Mary Stevens.

Although the back cover of the book mentions eight titles as the "first" in this new series, as far as I know these were the only titles ever issued - and this was the only Trixie Belden book issued in this format. 282 pp.

    Condition: Near fine in near fine dust jacket (usual toning to the pages, dust jacket beginning to delaminate on the flaps but still bright and attractive, a tight straight copy)

    Campbell, Julie.
    TRIXIE BELDEN AND THE MYSTERY OFF GLEN ROAD, #5 in series.

    Edition: Illustrated deluxe edition. Probably the most attractive hardcover format this series was issued in

    Racine, WI: Whitman, (1965). Hardcover - The fifth title in the series, in this slightly larger format (used only on the 1st 15 titles of the series, between 1965 and 1969), with matte illustrated boards and full-color endpapers with oval portraits of Trixie and Honey. The first books in this series introduce most of the major characters and develop a sense of place; Trixie's home in the Hudson River valley was modeled on Campbell's own home (just as her younger brother Bobby was modeled on her son). Although commissioned by the publisher to compete with the Nancy Drew series and other popular series, this is in many ways the opposite of Nancy Drew. Trixie is a real girl, who…

  • TRIXIE BELDEN: THE GATEHOUSE MYSTERY, #3. by Campbell, Julie.
    Campbell, Julie.
    TRIXIE BELDEN: THE GATEHOUSE MYSTERY, #3.

    Edition: Trade paperback. Square illustration on front cover.

    Racine, WI: Whitman, 1984. While not as well known as Nancy Drew, this is many girls' favorite series: Trixie is a real girl, with chores, school to attend, a little brother to babysit - but lots of adventures! This is a reissue in a new fomat (the last one used for this series) which was introduced in 1984 and only used for 2 years, and so is much less common than the ones with the oval illustration. They had a different design on the cover (the 'square' format picture); the last 5 titles appeared only in this format, and not all of the earlier titles were issued like this. Cover by Jodi Lee. 234 pp. ISBN: 0-307-215261.

    Condition: Very good condition.
