The Clue of the Tapping Heels. Carolyn Keene, Mildred Augustine Wirt.

The Clue of the Tapping Heels

New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1939. Russell H. Tandy. Cloth. A handsome copy of the January 1939 correct 1st edition ("Farah's Guide", 1939 A-1, pg. 280). Bibliographically very tricky but all issue points conform to the 1st edition requirements as laid down in "Farah's Guide", the definitive Nancy Drew bibliography, which is all-but-essential for determining the wide range of different printings. Tight and Near Fine (with just a touch of light spotting at the fore-edge) in a crisp, price-intact, VG+ to Near Fine dustjacket, with several very small closed tears along the panel edges and the slightest bit of faint chipping at the spine crown. Thick 12mo, 214 pgs., the wonderful dustjacket art by Russell Tandy. Well-preserved and very presentable -- and increasingly uncommon in its original printing. The 16th title in the series. Near Fine / Very Good +. Item #16445

Price: $500.00
