JOHN AND MARY DETECTIVES. Illustrated by Mary Gardiner
Edition: First printing
London: Frederick Muller, 1938. Octavo, mauve cloth stamped in yellow, illustrated endpapers. pp (283), (1), (4, ads); illustrations in text. A bit of cloth bubbling and very light spotting to covers; tiny cloth abrasion to top edge of rear cover; else fine, no owner names. The dust jacket has nicks to tipds of lightly yellowed spine, vertical crease to front flap, light darkening to flap folds, else fine, flap price intact. A very nice copy indeed, scarce in such nice condition of the 4th of the John and Mary series for younger readers. John and Mary form a detective agency when their gran loses a sapphire.
