Clean pages-- no other marks or writing in the book. Spine is slightly faded & Cover light rub, wear & Scuff, this is still a decent copy of one of the scarcest of all girls' series books, The cover of the books is gray with black lettering on the front and along the spine. There is some shelf wear at the top and bottom of the spine, along the edges, and at the corners; and scuffing on the surface and foxing along the spine. The lettering is still quite clear. On the outside of the pages (bottom) there is some toning; on the outside of the pages (top) there are numerous small surface nicks; on the outside of the page (right) there is a spot of toning and two 134" SURFACE flaws, caused either when the paper was bumped or nibbled by an insect. The boards wobble a little, but they are still solid and firmly attached to the pages. As you would expect, the pages have a mellow brownish tint and a little foxing. There is noticeable toning on the bottom outside edges from pages 180-250. However, all of the pages are present--none are torn or marked on--and all are firmly attached to the spine. Overall, this hard-to-find book is in good collectible condition. Bookseller Inventory # 21929

Garis. Back flap lists The Mary Lou Series by Edith Lovell. Originally this book was not reprinted with the other Beverly Gray titles, because the setting (Chicago's Century of Progress) dated the Story. One of the rarest of all girls series books, the sixth Beverly Gray mystery finds Beverly and her friends graduated from college and working in New York. Bored and envious that one of the other Alpha girls is going to Paris to study, Beverly and the remaining friends plan a month's outing to the 1933 Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago. Typical of Beverly, she witnesses a murder while at the Fair and proves instrumental in finding the murderer." VERY SCARCE TITLE, Bookseller Inventory # 21920
