Illustrated by Eileen Soper

Published by Hodder & Stoughton. 1st. 1944

Very good condition in a almost very good dustwrapper. Blue boards with black titles. Blue pictorial endpapers. B/w and two-colour illustrations. Colour frontis. The third Famous Five book.

Spine and corners bumped and slightly rubbed. Some very faint white spots to spine edges and a light tape(?) mark to rear cover and spine. Contents are clean. Dustwrapper is edge worn with a small patch of loss to base of spine, slightly grubby to spine and rear panel and some tears tape repaired on verso. Overall, a nice copy in a decent wrapper of this scarce Blyton first edition. This copy would make a wonderful gift.
