8 Nancy Drew Books. In 1962, Grosset & Dunlap introduced the picture cover and these books featured yellow spines and back covers (YSPC). The basic features for these were a matte cover with illustration, the name, author, volume number, and publisher Grosset & Dunlap on the spine and the spine symbol of Nancy's profile. All of these books have the original 25 chapter texts; only volumes 1-34 were ever printed in the original text books. None of these books has dust jackets.
