a.k.a. "Seth's Salvage Yard"
Are you frustrated with the hassle of trying to buy Three Investigators books through on-line auctions?  It's easy to get outbid at the last minute or to find yourself in the midst of a bidding war and paying much more than you know you should have for a book.  Occasionally you'll receive a book you purchased at auction only to find that it was misrepresented by the seller, sometimes intentionally.  Are you tired of searching through hundreds of over-priced Three Investigators books at on-line bookstores just to find the one or two bargains that might be there or visiting the used bookstores in your area with little or no luck?  Well, you've found the answer to your problem!

                                 marker slash on the top edge of the textblock.  No other seller would bother to
                                 mention it because it is so tiny and inconsequential but there is a pencil-point dot

#1 Terror Castle - FIRST PRINT with Text Error on Page 47! For those attempting to build a "master set"
                           here is a scarce opportunity to acquire this First Print in GLB, one with a musty odor
                           sold on eBay on 7/29/17 for nearly $250.00.  This copy would also enhance the value,
                           prestige, and overall interest factor of a more modest collection.  This copy is ex-
                           library but is in quite nice condition, ask for the pics.  Covers and spine are nice and
                           bright with a touch of light rubbing, spine ends are bumped with a small amount of
                           cardboard exposed, partial library tag remains on spine.  Four corners facing rear of
                           shelf are bumped with a tiny bit of cardboard exposed.  Library address stamped on
                           outside edge of textblock, same stamp on second title page, no other libary stamping
                           or tags noted.  Last free endpage was removed from the book, it no doubt had the
                           library pocket.  Some numbers written in crayon on last blank page of book.  Else,
                           textblock is tight, clean and square throughout.  Quite nice for ex-library.  $125.00

                                      library.  A former owner successfully removed all of the spine tags with no

                                      reasons unknown over the scar and also on the spine ends and on the four
                                      corners facing rear of shelf, all of which appear to be lightly bumped and
                                      rubbed.  New owner will want to remove this tape, should be an easy job, and

                                      with no missing pages.  There is some faint scarring and a few stray scribbles
                                      to the first free endpaper where the library slip was attached.  Name of library

Savage Statue - 1st print RLB HARDBACK! Quite difficult to find.  A bright, beautiful copy with all of the
                          usual tags and stampings but this one doesn't appear to have actually been in circu-
                          lation.  Spine ends gently bumped and rubbed.  Two of the four corners facing rear of
                          shelf are nice and pointy, two are gently bumped.  Pages tight and clean throughout.
                          Unused cardpocket on first blank page, one stamping on title page.  This one will
                          clean up spectacularly with patience!  Please compare to prices elsewhere on-line
                          but don't waste too much time, you'll kick yourself for missing this one!  $165.00
