Japanese Three Investigators Illustrations

In early 2003, Martha Schwartz sent me some copies of illustrations from some of the Three Investigators books that had been published in Japan. Although all of them are not immediately identifiable in terms of what exact scenes are being illustrated, they are very interesting and show a different illustrating style than what we had in the United States. Below are several of the scans from several of the books.

From The Secret of Terror Castle
From The Mystery of the Fiery Eye
From The Mystery of the Shrinking House
