April 13, 2010Vintage MCM Books – Trixie Belden
I have a fond affection for Trixie Belden books as they were the first mystery stories I read as a young girl. They are also pure MCM Americana, which makes them even more delightful.
The original author, Julie Campbell, began writing the series in 1948 through 1958 and had six books published during that time frame. After that, “ghost writers” from the publishing company took over using the pen name of Kathryn Kenny.
Since my own original collection are in a sad state of disrepair, I have been buying up vintage copies. The following books were put out during the Fifties, in hard cover with a cellophane finish. Here are Miss Campbell’s books by their original publishing date.
At age 56, I still read my Trixie Belden books, enjoying all of their vintage charms! Do you have any classic literature that you read over and over again? Tell me about them!
