    Little Orphan Annie Hardback Lot (Cupples & Leon, 1927). This fascinating series of rare platinum-age books starts in 1926, when Harold Gray decided to package his Little Orphan Annie newspaper strips into a book and sell them at a price of 60 cents each during the Christmas season. This lot consists of Book #2, "In the Circus" 1927 (writing in pencil on inside cover); Book #3, "The Haunted House" 1928 (writing in pencil on inside front cover); Book #4 "Bucking the World" 1928 (writing in pencil on front cover); Book #5 "Never Say Die" 1928 (writing in pen on inside front cover); Book #6 "Shipwrecked" 1930 (writing in pen front inside cover). All these books grade about FN and all have nice supple cream to off-white pages. A great way to collect Little Orphan Annie, which has become a very hard-to-find series. Overstreet 2001 FN value for group = $672.
