Mabel Esther Allan writing as Anne Pilgrim. Clare has the opportunity to spend the summer as a stewardess on a cruise ship in Holland. Purple boards, silver title to spine. 191 pages. SIGNED by the author (Anne Pilgrim and Mabel Ester Allan used) to front endpaper. Spine bumped with fading to top and tail. Small mark to lower corner of front cover and tiny bump at lower edge. There are some light marks to page margins and textblock is ever so slightly grubby. Dustwrapper is browned to spine and also slightly worn at top and tail of spine (minimal loss). The wrapper does look as though it is 5mm too short for the book but does not appear to have been trimmed so I believe this is how it was produced.
