This vintage book, Cherry Ames: Student Nurse (Grosset & Dunlap, 1943), is the first book in a series written by Helen Wells (and later, other authors). The 27 mystery novels in the series were published between 1943 and 1968. This book bears a 1943 copyright date, but it's from a later reprint from the early 1960s. However, it has the same marvelous cover art by Ralph Crosby Smith from the original dust jacket, as well as a black and white frontispiece. The back cover lists other volumes in the series and has a great illustration of Cherry and a doctor (male, of course) with the headline "The adventures of a young and dedicated career nurse."

The book is in very good condition. It has a little corner and spine wear on the cover but a tight binding. Inside has a name neatly written on the inside fly leaf, but otherwise it looks like it was never read.

Size: 213 pp; 7 1/2 x 5 inches

"'Golly,' Cherry exclaimed before she realized it was the wrong answer. But Miss Kent only smiled."
