Introduction

Welcome to my illustrated bibliography of all of the books in Nelson Doubleday’s Junior Deluxe Editions series, I hope it will help people to build their collections of this delightful series – but please feel free to jump down to the table at the end of the text right now if you’re only after the list of titles and don’t need the potted history that follows. Or if you only arrived here to find out if the stack of JDEs you rescued from the rats in the attic is going to make you rich, then you can head straight down to the section on valuing your books. But if you’re a book lover or collector and you’re interested in some background information, then please do hang around and read on…

Background

The list below includes all the titles that are typically considered to be part of the series, but some of the books have been released in multiple variants at different times (e.g. Alice in Wonderland with two different illustrators) and I may be missing a few of the variants as they are harder to track down. I have images for almost all the books, although for a couple of the super rare volumes I have only small images from someone’s collection as “proof” that they are out there in the wild somewhere. If you happen to be one of those lucky people who own the ultra rare volumes which don’t yet have nice images available, and would be willing to share a photo, and/or can identify any of the missing variants, I know that many people would be incredibly grateful if you could make a note in the comments! (In fact, please feel free to use the comments section to share your love for the series – what’s your favourite volume? how did you get into collecting? how many volumes do you have so far, and are you looking for help finding a particular volume? have you discovered any other interesting tidbits of information throughout your collecting journey?)

Many people who collect this series are also interested in the Best in Children’s Books series which was also released in the 1950s through the Doubleday Book Clubs, and has a similar size and design feel to it. So, please do check out the BICB series page if you’re interested in that series as well.

Junior Deluxe Editions - Publishing History

The Junior Deluxe Editions are likely to be familiar to anyone who was a child in the 50s or 60s, or who haunt charity and second-hand book-stores keeping an eye out for cheerful-looking children’s novels. Most of the books have long since lost their dust jackets, and the brightly coloured boards with decorative images on the spines and folksy cover designs are instantly recognisable. The books were published from the early 1940s to late 1960s (mainly by Nelson Doubleday Inc) and were available through a monthly book club. 

The selection of titles are mostly classic children’s novels that are still very popular today (some have been retold for a younger audience), and several artists from the wide variety of illustrators chosen to illustrate the books went on to be quite collectible in their own right (such as Leonard Weisgard, Ezra Jack Keats and Robin Jacques): a reflection of the strong choices made by the editorial team behind the books. The books unfortunately do not credit their endpaper or cover designers, but the look is quite consistent, and a manuscript note inside Ezra Jack Keat’s copy of Peterkin Papers indicates that art direction and book design for that volume was by Diana Klemin (see Ezra Jack Keats: A Bibliography and Catalogue. She was presumably also responsible for other volumes, since there is also correspondence from her in the Sherlock archives, for example). Diana was an experienced art director, and author of the book The Art of Art for Children’s Books.

A complete list of titles for collectors has long been elusive due to the slightly muddled history of the development and production of the series, and I have put together this list following many years of research. The earliest volumes in the series started life at the Doubleday’s subsidiary press in Garden City, NY. In the early 1900s, NYC company Doubleday Page & Co were one of America’s premier publishers of books and magazines, and they urgently needed more space. One of the first firms to move to the suburbs, they decided to purchase a parcel of land along the railway in Garden City to house their subsidiary Country Life Press, and a new station was built especially to serve them in 1911. This helped them to develop distribution channels that revolutionised the publishing industry – families that had previously only had access to newspapers and magazines suddenly started bringing books into their homes. Doubleday spent generously in the area around this new press, building wonderful gardens around the printing plant and the Franklin Mews for its workers, as well as large homes for supervisors and executives, and Garden City consequently became one of America’s first corporate towns. The first “proto-” Junior Deluxe Editions were published under the Country Life Press / Garden City imprint in the late 30s and early 40s.

Junior Deluxe Editions advert 1

Initially producing 6,500 books per day, that figure had grown to 115,000 books by 1945, at which time Doubleday was the largest publisher in the US, with annual sales of over 30 million books. Some of this growth had been spurred by the mail order subscription ‘book club’ model that was first introduced to the company by Nelson Doubleday in the 1920s. Garden City’s early books were actually primarily reprints of books first offered by Doubleday, printed from the original plates but on less expensive paper.

The earliest volumes in the Junior Deluxe Editions series were therefore not yet marketed as part of a standalone series, but were rather reprints of other publications in the Doubleday stable that were specially marketed as affordable but beautiful special “Junior De Luxe Editions” (yes, the space in “de luxe” is used in the earliest volumes) on the title page. For example, several of these volumes were taken from the ‘Rainbow Classics’ series under the World Publishing Company imprint from NY, simply dropping the introductions, and adding the text “Garden City, New York, Junior De Luxe Editions” to the title or fly leaf. Some of these early volumes did not feature the JDE title on the spine, nor list it as the publishing house on the copyright page (as do the ‘main’ books later in the series), and are identifiable only by the title page text, but as the series developed these recognisable features began to appear.

As the books started to gain popularity, the books started to be grouped into a series that was initially marketed as the “Doubleday Classics” on the dust jackets, including Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-GlassHeidiBlack Beauty and some of the fairy tale collections. Later, this was renamed the “Doubleday Junior Classics,” and finally the “Junior Deluxe Editions” label that is so familiar today. Many of these early titles would later go on to be reprinted as part of the main series with different covers (and sometimes even different illustrators) – and this adds significant confusion when preparing a ‘definitive’ list of publications. For example, the slideshow below showcases some of the various ways Black Beauty has changed over the years in the series.

The advert pictured below explains how members were asked to commit to at least six books a year (the introductory first three costing only 10c in total), while the flyer above (kindly shared by krakencrafts via flickr) shows how members were able to swap out the monthly featured book for a variety of alternate selections (or order additional books, if they were so inclined). Now-grown children whose families collected the books for them recall using stickers with the names of the books on them to make the orders when they sent them in. Each new book in the series was advertised via a monthly ‘introduction to next month’s featured selection’ leaflet sent out with the preceding month’s release (photo below snagged from ebay).

What are my Junior Deluxe Editions worth?

I’m sure at least some of you happened upon this page because you inherited a cache of books from your grandparents and you just want to know what you can get for them. Bad news first – whilst this series is beloved by many and collections look adorable on the shelf, most book club editions are typically valued quite poorly by collectors, and JDE books are no exception to this (mind you, this is of course excellent news for collectors, as you can easily build up a lovely looking collection of nostalgia without breaking the bank). 

Many of the books in the series are very common and can still be found easily and cheaply second hand across the US, in charity shops or second hand stores and online (and the list below includes links to see which books are currently available online in case that’s helpful for you).

The good news for sellers is that books with dust jackets are much more uncommon and can certainly command higher prices if they are in good condition. Copies of Alice in WonderlandThrough the Looking-Glass and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are also usually priced higher than other volumes, since JDE collectors are competing with other people who specifically collect either Lewis Carroll or Roald Dahl works in any edition for these works. However, by far the most valuable books in the series are those earliest releases, which are really quite rare (presumably because the subscriber base started out much smaller), and collectors may well be willing to part with a decent amount of cash to be able to complete their collection for these scarce volumes. The rarest volume of all is The Rainbow Book of Bible Stories, while others that can command high prices include Don QuixoteThe Hunchback of Notre DameThe SpyAn Old Fashioned GirlPride and Prejudice, The Man in the Iron Mask, and Fairy Tales (the rare version is the one not specifically titled as being by Grimm or Andersen). People who collect variant copies are also likely to be interested in (and willing to pay more for) the early editions of any books which were later reprinted, since they have different cover designs, and sometimes even different illustrators.

Note: A couple of the images in the table below were kindly provided by Jeff Boyd via Flickr. He also has a nice album of frontispieces, if you’d like to go check it out. Most of the others were sourced from private collections, with a few of the low resolution pictures of very rare items snagged from online auctions.
