The Mystery of Banshee Towers by Enid Blyton, 1st / 1st, 1961
London: Methuen, (1961).
First edition. This is a near fine copy. The dust wrapper, with the generic illustrations, are clean and with light areas of separation at the corners. There is also light rubbing at the top and bottom edges. It has not been price clipped. The boards are free from notable chips and marks and the text blocks are with slight foxing, but generally clean. There is a previous owner’s inscription present on the frontal free endpaper in blue ink. There is some very slight soiling present. Overall, this is a near fine copy of a nice title. The last children's novel in a series of fifteen known collectively as The Five Find-Outers and Dog. The series ran for eighteen years, from 1943 to this one, published in 1961.
