A Three-Cornered Mystery

Most Likely Printed 1953

This is the fourth book in the Dana Girls series. The series was started in 1934. This particular copy of A Three-Cornered Mystery was most likely printed in 1953. This assumption is based on the books advertised on the jacket back (Nancy Drew Black Keys - 1951) and inside the book (Nancy Drew Velvet Mask - 1953).

This is a very nice copy. The DJ is in fair to good condition. Itís clean and bright with good color. There are a few small chips, rubs, and creases on the top and bottom edge and at the spine and flap folds. The most significant issue is the evidence of water damage on the front and back flap folds. Because the front cover is a dark scene, the water marks are not particularly visible on the front - just the white parts of the front flap and the back. The underside of the jacket has been taped slightly with non-yellowing tape. It is not visible from the outside of the jacket. Check out the scans to see the condition of this jacket.

The book is in very good condition. The color is excellent. The binding is tight, and all pages are securely attached. There is a little shelf wear on the top and bottom board edges. There is some barely visible white residue on the board side edges matching the place where water damage shows on the jacket. This residue isn't obvious and is not on the inside of the book at all. The pages are bright with no tears or dog-ears. There is a name written in ink (twice) on the first title page, and there is no other writing anywhere in the book.

A note about the scans of this book:
My scanner 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.
