Dell Keyhole Variations

    Newer Older

    The early Dell Books featured the image of an eye peering through a keyhole on the front cover. Over the years they tweaked the keyhole in various ways. Here are examples from my collection (not all first instances):

    Dell 1 Original Mystery keyhole design – Death in the Library

    Dell 25 Mapback keyhole with “A Dell Book” – Speak No Evil
    Dell 47 Mapback keyhole with Lines – Keeper of the Keys
    Dell 49 Mapback keyhole with Book Number – The Feathered Serpent

    2nd Row from left to right:

    Dell 73 Mapback - First Romance keyhole – Week-end Marriage
    Dell 195 Mapback - Adventure keyhole – Beam’s End
