About This Item

New York:: World Syndicate Publishing Co., (1931.). Good only condition in blue cloth (corners bumped, rather severe toning to the pages, slight spine slant and some wear to the covers). Early printing. The third book in the Airplane Girl series (originally published as the Girl Sky Pilot series) . As Brodogan comments in her monograph on "Flying Girls, Super Sleuths." . "In the moment before aviation was commercialized, and social limits were officially imposed, a number of significant girlsÕ aviation series books slipped past cultural gatekeepers and emerged onto the reading scene." This series was one of several in the early 1930s, most quite uncommon now. It is a mix of realism and the improbable - Roberta Langwell finds herself kidnapped and her plane taken over by seal poachers who are operating from an island in the Bering Sea. Unlike most juvenile series, this ends abruptly with Roberta still imprisoned on the island, although her means of escaping seems to be at hand. 223 pp.

About Bookfever.com, IOBA

This is our 28th year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
