Turn of the Century Detective Paperback Novels
The Magnet Detective Library from Street & Smith was noted
primarily for the publication of the stories of Nick Carter. However
they also put out the best of other American and foreign detective
stories. From the late 19th through the early 20th centuries a
vast number of titles were available to the public for only 10
cents a copy. As is typical for their age and materials the books
that we are offering all have discolored pages, some soiling,
chips and tears in the covers and some spine loss. All are complete.
Other defects are noted.
