Book ID: 67414
Five On Kirrin Island. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1947. First Edition. Maroon boards, spine lettered in black, pictorial end-papers printed in dark blue and black. In publisher’s dust jacket. Light chipping to rear of jacket with a little loss, otherwise a nice bright copy.
Illustrated with full coloured frontispiece and several semi-coloured drawings throughout the text by Eileen Soper.
Also issued in blue boards, this copy is the scarcer issue in maroon. The printing error to the front cover of the dust jacket & frontispiece shows the telescope the wrong way round. This was corrected in the third edition.
The sixth book in the Famous Five series.
