SECRET OF TATE'S BEACH
Edition: First or early printing.
New York: The Century Co., (1926). Hardcover - Novel set on the remote New Jersey coast. Despite the fact that this had several printings, it remains one of Seaman's more difficult to find titles in any edition. The story which involves 2 shipwrecks - one long ago, and one 18 years before the time of the story - and a lost treasure. Illustrated by C. M. Relyea with a frontispiece and 3 glossy plates (as a side comment, a couple of the plates show our young heroine on the beach in dainty high heeled pumps; the more realistic story has both girls changing into their 'tie-ups' before venturing off.) 306 pp.
Condition: Good condition overall in tan cloth with black lettering and illustration with a green background on front cover and spine. (bookstore stamp, missing one of the plates, corners bumped, some rubbing and wear to the covers)
