This VG+ book--I think it is a 1931-A-6, but I am not a Hardy Boys expert, so feel free to ask me questions or request more photos--is in very fine condition. The exterior is very clean, with a very slight lean and no edge dings; upper front corner is very lightly bumped, as are the head and heel of the spine, all without fabric damage. The interior is perfect: no writing, stray marks, stains of any sort or page damage, with strong hinges and flexible paper. Back of the book lists 9 Hardy Boys titles, 12 Ted Scott titles, 9 X-Bar-X titles, & 32 Tom Swift titles. The VG jacket has a slightly darkened spine (shield is still very readily visible), with only very minor edge chips and a 1" closed tear at the top front gutter. A very attractive copy of this title.
