THE STARS OF SABRA. by Seaman, Augusta Huiell.


Edition: First edition.

Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co., Inc, 1932. Novel for older girls set on the coast of New Jersey and involving an unsolved mystery from Revolutionary days. Even Seaman's books which had many printings have become very hard to find in recent years, and this title - issued in the midst of the Depression - had a first printing of only 5,000 copies (many of which went to libraries), making it one of her most uncommon novels. Since it is also one of her best-realized and most satisfying books with a great ending, the fact that it is so hard to find is doubly disappointing. Illustrated by Manning De V. Lee with a 3 color frontispiece, green and white illustrated endpapers, and a portion of a 1765 map. 273 pp.

Condition: Very good in red cloth with black lettering, clean and tight overall, tidemarks in the lower margin of a few pages, but in better condition than usually found.
