Description:
This is a rare copy of this early young adult novel, equal parts exciting melodrama and sentimental moral instruction with Presbyterian overtones. Elsie Dinsmore attained an extraordinary prominence in the canon of girls' series books, with her adventures running to 28 books; an institution to be rebelled against by all the less pious dreamers and intrepid detectives of 20th-century children's literature who followed in her footsteps, such as Nancy Drew. 6.5'' x 4.5''. Green on boards with silver and dark green design. Some wear and spine loosening.. 342 pages. Some wrinkle and small spot stain.

The original binding has been reinforced (re-backed), but in a way that preserves the original spine cloth and look.
