Exceptionally tight and lovely first edition of this volume in this publisher's "Junior Mystery Club," uncannily bright and sharp. The usually-absent jacket is not only present, but the circular cipher on the rear panel (which the text encourages you to "cut out... Stick a pin through the center, and place on top of larger circle") has not been defaced. Quite scarce as such.
