THE UNFINISHED HOUSE: Judy Bolton Mystery #11.
Edition: Early printing.
New York: Grosset & Dunlap, (ca 1940. c. 1938.). Hardcover - My favorite series as a young girl: I liked them for the realism: Judy starts out as a high school girl, has some of the usual problems all kids encounter including misunderstandings among friends, etc, is a little older and more mature in each book - in fact, she gets married, and eventually she and her husband even adopt a child. Unlike most of the other series books published by Grosset and Dunlap, this was not part of the Stratemeyer Syndicate. Margaret Sutton was a real woman, writing under her own name. Because of the opposition of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, this series did not have the extensive reprinting that the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys had. Frontispiece. Bound in green boards with purple lettering, pink and white "flashlight" endpapers by Pelagie Doane. (format used between 1940-1942) . 250 pp
Condition: Good condition only (rather severe toning to the pages) no dust jacket.
