Tight and quite lovely first edition, second state of #16 in the Hardy Boys series -- cites up to this title on front jacket flap, on copyright page list and on rear ad list, shows "5050" at upper left of front flap but doesn't have broken type on word "Service" in "The Outdoor Girls Series" ad at rear. Still scarce as such -- and a most attractive copy.
