The Valley of Adventure, 1st edn 1947 (Enid Blyton)For her third title in the Adventure Series, The Valley of Adventure published in 1947, Enid Blyton allows her characters to venture abroad, to a secret valley where treasure is to be found!

This wraparound Tresilian jacket is unique in this series for having a separate spine image; most examples of this jacket look rather washed-out, but the ReproJacket succeeds in bringing out the intended colouring.

A small error on the front flap -- in the heading text there's a stop between Enid and Blyton which was removed from later printings.

The Valley of Adventure, 1st edn 1978 (11th printing) (Enid Blyton)Here we have one of the last printings of the 1st edition. At this period the printings of this series used even thicker paper than for earlier issues, and the books were consequently thicker. This jacket is a little taller but with less width to the flaps than the 1957 jacket, for example.
