THE GIRL NEXT DOOR.
Edition: Early printing.
New York: The Century Co., 1919 (c 1917.). Hardcover - Seaman's books have become hard to find in recent years, but they are wonderful stories for girls - many involving history and hidden mysteries rooted in the past. In this story, a girl moves to the city, and next door to her apartment building is a ramshackle old house known as "Benedict's Folly" - and living in that house is a strange girl. Missionaries to China and the Boxer Rebellion all play a part in this story - this book is dedicated to Hoa-Sian-Si-Nui (Margaret Gillespie Fagg) and Hoa -Sian-Si (John Gerardus Fagg, the author of Forty Years in South China.) Illustrated with a frontispiece and 7 glossy inserted plates by C. M. Relyea, 240 pp.
Condition: Good only condition - dampstaining throughout affecting the top corners or margins of most pages - some scattered foxing, binding is tight and sturdy.
