Quite tight, handsome early (not first) printing of this 1910 juvenile fiction, the third in the 4-volume "High School Boys" series (all published 1910). Likely of early teens vintage, as some of the other Hancock volumes noted on rear jacket panel and in rear advertisements date to this period. A challenging title to find in such sharp condition AND in a quite nice jacket. Scarce as such.
