The Secret of the Jade Ring

Most Likely Printed - 1960

This is the fifteenth book in the Dana Girls series. The series was started in 1934. This particular copy of The Secret of the Jade Ring was most likely printed in 1960. This assumption is based on the books advertised on the jacket back (Nancy Drew Golden Pavilion - 1959) and inside the book (Nancy Drew Old Stagecoach - 1960).

This is a very nice copy. The DJ is in good condition. Itís clean and bright with good color. There are chips, rubs, and creases on the top and bottom edge and at the spine and flap folds. There is a 3" closed tear at the bottom of the spine and a 4" closed tear at the bottom of the front flap fold. Both have been repaired on the jacket underside with non-yellowing tape. There are additional closed tears at the top and bottom of the spine that have no tape repairs. Check out the scans to see the condition of this jacket.

The book is 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 partial hinge crack at the table of contents page. There is no writing anywhere in the book, however, there appears to be something, probably a name, erased on the copyright page.

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.
