THE CURIOUS AFFAIR AT HERON SHOALS.
Edition: 2nd printing.
New York & London: D. Appleton-Century, 1940. dj. Hardcover first edition - Delightful mystery involving a shipwreck many years ago, an irrepressible parrot named Methusulah, a new friendship between Marty, who lived at the remote New Jersey beach and a young musical prodigy who came to stay there for a while - all culminating in a dangerous hurricane - Illustrated by Manning deV Lee with a frontispiece, three full-page drawings and several small vignettes. 250 pp.
Condition: Very good in turquoise cloth with dark blue lettering in a poor dust jacket with fading to the spine (as appears to be common with all copies of this dj), tape repairs to the interior (front flap detached but still present), tears and creasing. Still a decent copy of one of Seaman's hardest to find titles, especially in dust jacket.
