About This Item

Probably first edition. Good book in like dust jacket. Dust jacket has minor closed tears and associated folds, including bottom left corner of front; some minor chipping with loss at flap folds and top of dust jacket; front flap is corner clipped but there is a publisher's price sticker on the front cover ($1.25). Red tweed boards, with black printing on front and spine; spine is bumped and slightly canted. Plain gray end papers, with prior owner's name on front free end paper. Frontispiece on plain paper. Cherry Ames titles list to this one inside book and on dust jacket. Grosset and Dunlap hard cover with dust jacket, 1961, Grosset & Dunlap #9722, 181 pages. 12mo (5.5" x 7.5") Cherry Ames books listed to this title; Vicky Barr books listed to #13: The Silver Ring Mystery, published in 1960. The Cherry Ames books were originally issued with dust jackets (volumes 1-22). The change to picture cover (PC) binding occurred circa 1962 with #23, when Grosset & Dunlap switched all the series books they published to that format. This means the present book is either the first printing or a very early printing of the first edition. Cherry Ames, Rural Nurse (#22 in the Cherry Ames series) was reprinted as The Case of the Dangerous Remedy. As a public health nurse in Iowa, Cherry works with federal authorities to quash the manufacture and distribution of a bogus remedy and discovers the secret of a decrepit, abandoned farmhouse.
