A wonderful Hardy Boys mystery novel for the collector! The Mystery of Cabin Island by Franklin W. Dixon. Copyright date of 1929 by Grosset & Dunlap Inc., although this is likely a 1950's printing, because the dust jacket flap lists to The Hooded Hawk Mystery. An early book in the series - this is book #8. The book measures approximately 7 1/2" x 5 1/4" and is in very good condition for it's age. Dust jacket is present, although it does have some wear as you can see in my pics, including some older tape on the inside. Hardcover is in good condition with slight creasing on spine, light spot on back cover. Decorative endpapers. Page edges have light foxing, but interior pages look clean. A couple of the pages have 1/4" tears at the top - nothing major. No odors. 214 pages.

Plot Summary (from iblist dot com):

"The Hardy Boys are elated over their good luck when wealthy Elroy Jefferson invites them to spend Christmas vacation at his private retreat on Cabin Island. But when Frank and Joe make a reconnaissance trip in their iceboat the Sea Gull to the island, a belligerent stranger orders them off. Why?

Before twenty-four hours have passed, the Hardys find themselves involved in two mysteries: the first concerns the recent disappearance of Mr. Jefferson's grandson, Johnny; the second, the baffling theft of a priceless collection of antique metals which took place two years ago. The young detectives, with their pals Chet Morton and Biff Hooper, pursue both cases on the icebound, snow-covered island.

Sabotage to the Sea Gull, danger to themselves, and a ghostly prowler do not daunt Frank and Joe in their search for Johnny Jefferson and for clues to the stolen antique metals. How the teen-age investigators outwit a ruthless foe and succeed in solving both mysteries makes for mounting suspense in this brisk-paced adventure."
