Most of the front panel of the dust jacket has been laid in the front of the book, but the rest is missing. Signed on title page: "Ethel Hume Bennett, / Christmas 1936 / Toronto." "Good story of a group of young people who succeed in solving the mystery of the disappearance of a model ship, a seal, a miniature and a deed -- all keys to the future happiness of one of the group. Perhaps luck is with them to a surprising degree, but, none the less, the following down of clues is well developed and less left to chance than in the average juvenile mystery yarns. The period is today -- the place Quebec and environs, but a great deal of history is made an essential part of the unravelling of the mystery." Kirkus Review. Book is very slightly cocked, soft crease down spine, light fading/toning to spine and some edges of boards, light edge wear - a little heavier at top/bottom of spine and at corners, light browning to edges of text block, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small crease at top corner of pages 1to 6, small tear at bottom of page 3, several very small tears at bottom of page 1 and illustration list page - all tears are archivally taped.
