The Clue in the Cobwebs

Most Likely Printed 1954

This is the eighth book in the Dana Girls series. The series was started in 1934. This particular copy of The Clue in the Cobwebs was most likely printed in 1954. This assumption is based on the books advertised on the jacket back and inside the book (Nancy Drew Scarlet Slipper - 1954).

This is a very nice copy. The DJ is in excellent condition. Itís clean and bright with good color. The jacket has an overall yellow cast to it which, I believe, was caused by the semi-gloss coating that was used on the jacket paper. There are a very few small chips, rubs, and creases on the top and bottom edge and at the spine and flap folds. There is one 1/4 to 1/2 inch closed tear on the spine just below the oval picture of the Dana Girls. And that's it - it is otherwise beautiful. Check out the scans to see the condition of this jacket.

The book is also in excellent condition. The color is excellent. The binding is tight, and all pages are securely attached. There is minimal shelf wear on the top and bottom board edges. There is a slight hinge crack, with no separation, at the front free end paper. There is no 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.
