Here is a collection of six of the Aunt Jane’s Nieces series written by L. Frank Baum (Wizard of Oz author) under the Edith Van Dyne pseudonym. All vintage, 5 published by Reilly & Britton and one by Reilly & Lee, but several only in fair condition, reading copies. All have a different color illustration of the 3 girls on the cover, with B&W frontispiece. This series has recently been reprinted, but why would you want a modern paperback copy when you can have beautiful vintage hardcopies for almost the same price?
