Dixon, Franklin W. (Leslie McFarlane, from an outline by Edward Stratemeyer)
The Hardy Boys / The Shore Road Mystery (IN RED CLOTH BOARDS WITH WHITE-SPINE JACKET)
Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 1930. Red cloth boards; brown titles outlined in black. "Near-fine" original jacket with minor chipping to corners only; red seal to jacket's white spine is moderately faded. Glossy frontispiece, no internal illustrations. High quality text pages creamy white -- not noticeably browned, aged, or degenerating. Wonderful Walter Rogers period cover art features the Hardys' elongated yellow Packard (?) roadster (text indicates it's a convertible) with what appears to be the appropriate winged swan hood ornament. Carpentieri's "Hardy and Hardy Investigations" makes this issue 1930 D-7, the seventh printing overall of a book copyright 1928. Nine Hardys through "Great Airport Mystery" (1930) to jacket front flap; 12 Ted Scotts through "Air to Alaska" (1930) to jacket rear flap; nine X Bar X Boys through "Lost in the Rockies" (1930) to jacket rear panel. VERSO of jacket lists G&D titles in green ink, including 33 Tom Swifts through "Big Dirigible" (1930.) Internal ads to rear of text also list nine Hardys through "Great Airport Mystery," 12 Ted Scotts through "Air to Alaska," 33 Swifts through "Big Dirigible," 10 Don Sturdys through "Land of Giants" (1930.) 212 numbered pages followed by 8 pp. publishers ads. All original and hard-to-find thus. [Attributes: Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
