A startlingly bright and tight true first edition of this fourth title in the 10-volume "Boy Allies of the Navy Series" (1915-19). All proper points (title page lists first three titles only, rear jacket panel lists up to this title). Outstanding jacket front panel art (which matches front board) depicts a lurking submarine underwater in foreground as warship in middle ground explodes and sinks. Quite scarce, especially in this stunning condition and especially with the rarely-present jacket. A truly superlative copy.
