By the Light of the Study Lamp AND The Secret at Lone Tree Cottage (The First 2 Books in the Dana Girls Series: Both 1st Editions in Nice Dustjackets)

New York: 1934. Ferdinand E. Warren. Decorative Cloth. Very impresive examples of the 1934 genuine 1st editions of the first 2 titles in the "Dana Girls" series. The first 3 titles in the series (""By the Light of the Study Lamp", "The Secret at Lone Tree Cottage" and "In the Shadow of the Tower") were published simultaneously and only these 3 titles have been listed on the dustjacket front flaps. (And only 10 titles -- up thru 1934-- are listed on the rear flaps {ending with "The Password to Larkspur Lane"} in the "Nancy Drew" series). Both titles tight and VG+ to Near Fine (very light soiling at "Secret at Lone Tree's" fore and bottom-edges) in crisp, VG+ dustjackets, with very light creasing and several small closed tears along "Lone Tree's" spine base, and light chipping --with a small closed tear-- along "Study Lamp's" spine crown. Still though, attractive and very presentable. Unform 12mos, nicely-illustrated frontispieces and endpapers by Ferdinand E. Warren. Very Good + / Very Good +. Item #17676

Price: $500.00
