THE CLUE IN THE PATCHWORK QUILT: Judy Bolton #14.
Edition: Later printing.
New York: Grosset & Dunlap, (ca 1957, c 1941). Hardcover - A mystery series, which is in many ways, more realistic than most such series. 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. The "mysteries" are mostly based on actual events, the town where the book are set is the town where Sutton grew up and unlike most of the other series books published by Grosset and Dunlap, this was not part of the Stratemeyer Syndicate. 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. Lists to #28 at back of book. 214 pp. plus 1 pp publisher's ad.
Condition: Good condition in rust-colored tweed cloth with rust and white 'haunted house' illustrated endpapers (slight spine slant, bookplate), no dj .
