Description

The Secret Seven is a fictional group of child detectives created by Enid Blyton. They consist of Peter (the society's head), Janet (Peter's Sister), Jack, Barbara, George, Pam and Colin. Jack's sister Susie and her best friend Binkie often make an appearance in the books; they hate the Secret Seven and delight in playing tricks designed to humiliate them, although much of this is fuelled by their almost obsessive desire to belong to the society. Unlike most other Blyton series, this one takes place during the school term time because the characters go to day schools.

This is a copy of Secret Seven on the Trail, originally published in 1952 with this copy being a ninth impression from 1965. In good vintage condition and with the original dust wrapper.

Pages are in good clean condition. They have some mild foxing and tanning around the closed edges but otherwise have no other marks or signs of previous ownership. There are a number of in-text illustrations by George Brook (see photos). With illustrated endpapers and blue cloth boards which are also in good condition having been well protected by the dust wrapper.

The jacket itself has also fared pretty well for a children's book of this age. It has not been price clipped and retains strong colours. Has some edge wear and mild creasing along the top and bottom edges and some faint marks on the rear cover. With a foxing strip across the top of the rear flap. The front cover remains very good with little sign of wear. Has some rubbing and creases to the spine and in particular at the head and tail. Overall the jacket remains in good vintage condition. The jacket has now been protected for the future by the addition of a removable plastic sleeve.

Your copy of Secret Seven on the Trail will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon.

H 19.5 cm x W 13.5 cm, 121 pages, 0.24 kg. I dispatch worldwide* daily from the UK. Further shipping information can be found in the shop policies section if required.
*There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to.
