Blue tweed boards with navy print on front and spine. Blue and white illustrated end papers - Tom in lab looking out window at plane. Prior owner's name on front free end paper. Otherwise pages are clean and unmarked. Grosset and Dunlap hard cover with dust jacket, 1st edition 1959, 184 pages, illustrated by Graham Kaye. 8vo (7.5"" x 5"") Tom Swift and His Electronic Retroscope (The New Tom Swift Jr Adventures #14), by Jim Lawrence writing as Victor Appleton II. 1972 paperback edition was retitled Tom Swift in the Jungle of the Mayas but it's the same book. This 1959 1st Printing lists 14 TOM SWIFT JR. titles on the DJ rear flap and in the book (to this title) and 38 HARDY BOYS titles on the rear panel (to The Mystery at Devil's Paw, pub. 1959). Enraged Jaguars, violent winds of hurricane force, and a mysterious ""giant"" who roams the jungle around the Mayan village in Yucatan, Mexico, where Tom is encamped, are only a few of the perils that the young inventor encounters during his thrilling expedition. But even more feared by the young inventor is an unknown saboteur, intent on destroying Tom's two latest inventions--the electronic retroscope camera and his ""parachute"" plane, designed for landing in small areas. Undaunted by the hazards that surround him and assisted by teh friendly natives, Tom perseveres in his objectives. He tests his paraplane for landing maneuverability in densely grown jungle areas, and uses his retroscope (magic to the natives!) to restore--photographically--ancient carvings and writing on old Mayan relics. Tom is astounded when he discovers that some of the carved symbols are similar to the mathematical symbols used by his mysterious friends in outer space to communicate with him. Is it possible, Tom wonders, that beings from another planet actually landed in Yucatan centuries ago?

Appleton, Victor II

Grosset & Dunlap, 1959. Hardcover. Good to very Good/Good to Very good. could be first print, but doubt it...no other info other than copyright date on that page. Solid book, with edge wear and bit of a spine lean, but has an attractive dust jacket with a bit of corner wear (not price clipped...has no price on it). A bit of bleed from the top edge color onto the edge of the dj (blue), so must have been some water somewhere, but no interior damage or other indication of dampness. Cool and collectible.
