A superb, tight of the twelfth title in the 64-volume "Nancy Drew" series (1930-81). Copyright page lists first 12 titles and ad at rear lists first 10 titles only. This internal evidence plus a non-authorial gift inscription on front flyleaf dated 25 December 1938 make this likely a first edition. Lacks dust jacket, else attractive.
