    THE FIGUREHEAD OF THE FOLLY.
    Edition: Early printing.

    Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran & Co., Inc., 1936. Hardcover - The contemporary setting for this very satisfying story by Seaman is depression-era America, where Joan's widowed mother is forced to take a position as a live-in secretary to ensure Joan's college education, and Joan herself goes to stay at a rather unusual boarding house in a small New Jersey town, run by an old friend of her mothers, where she will assume the responsibilty of being companion to a wheelchair bound young girl; the historical mystery goes back to the days of the clipper ship. While an interesting story, this title is one of the more difficult to find, probably due in part to the fact that it was published while the Depression was still affecting the market for books. Illustrated by Elizabeth C. Tazelaar (a two tone frontispiece, illustrated endpapers of a clipper ship in full sail, and a small title page vignette.) 264 pp.
