The Bobbsey Twins


Collection of 29 Bobbsey Twins books by Laura Lee Hope. The Bobbsey Twins are the principal characters of what was, for many years, the longest-running series of American children's novels. The first of 72 books was published in 1904, the last in 1979, with a separate series of 30 books published from 1987 through 1992. The books related the adventures of the children of the upper-middle-class Bobbsey family, which included two sets of fraternal twins: Nan and Bert, who were 12 years old, and Flossie and Freddie, who were six.


The books in this collection span several different publication series as well as publishers. Books show wear and soil. Some include jackets, see below for detailed condition notes. There are a few duplicate titles.
