The Secret at Lone Tree Cottage


Most Likely Printed 1949

This is the second book in the Dana Girls series. The series was started in 1934. This particular copy of The Secret at Lone Tree Cottage was most likely printed in 1949. This assumption is based on the books advertised on the jacket back and inside the book (Nancy Drew Leaning Chimney - 1949).

This is an excellent copy. The DJ is in excellent condition. Itís clean and bright with good color. There are a few small chips, rubs, and creases on the top and bottom edged and at the spine and flap folds. There is some very light soiling on the jacket back. It shows up much darker than it really is on the scan. It also shows up a little pink - it is really very light and not pink at all. There is a pencilled 25 on the upper right corner of the front flap fold. Check out the scans to see the condition of this jacket.

The book is also in excellent condition. The binding is tight, and all pages are securely attached. There is a miniscule amount of shelf wear on the top and bottom board edges. The color is very vibrant. The pages are clean and bright with no tears or dog-ears, and there is no writing anywhere in the book.

Two notes about the scans of this book:
There is a green line running horizontally along the bottom of the open book scan. That was inserted by my scanner and does not exist on the book. See the scan of the book front cover - it's not there.
My scanner also adds a pink tone to the white areas of the book and jacket. It can be seen on the title page and on the jacket back. The color is actually creamy white with no pink tone.

All jackets are protected in a mylar cover to prevent damage.
