Typewriters and a desk from the home of the original author of the Nancy Drew mystery books, along with a book detailing how the series was created, have been auctioned off in Ohio.
A copy of "Rediscovering Nancy Drew" inscribed for her daughter went for a gavel price of $2,150. A typewriter went for $825, and a desk had a price of $525.
The auction house handling the sale says many of the items, including autographed posters and awards, came from Benson's home office.
