The Whitman Publishing Co. published the 8 inch books known as 50-cent juveniles. These books provide a snapshot of popular culture from the years they were published, the 1910s to the 1970s. They were published in a variety of series such as Whitman Classics, Adventures For Boys, Mysteries, and the most notable, the Authorized Editions, which were gleaned from radio, screen, comic strips, and TV series. Considering the many characters and personality figures that were featured in the Whitman books, there is enormous crossover collectibility of these books for other fields. Written with the collector in mind, this book was thoughtfully organized by author, volume number, and title. There are nearly 400 color photos and each title has the author, volume number, copyright date, type of cover, number of pages, other books in the series, and a current value. It supplies all you need to know about defects and grading, and there's a considerable amount of historical information of the Whitman company. 1999 values. 8.5 X 11.
