Dell Peanuts page count

We now have an announced page count for the Peanuts Dell Archive collection of comic books stories originally published in the 1950s and 1960s by Dell Publishing – the listing now has it at 352 pages. That’s a nice thick book… but it’s only about half as many pages as the stories that Dell published. It is, however, around the right number of pages if you’re only reprinting the comics that were numbered as Peanuts issues (ten issues) and excluding the earlier ones that had Peanuts on the cover but were numbered as part of the series known as Four Color,  as well as the short stories that appeared in titles like Nancy and Tip Top. Or this could just be a volume 1/volume 2 thing. In any case, its $24.99 cover price should be well worth it, better still if you order now and Amazon discounts it some before it ships in the fall (they almost always do.)
