1459 CHARLIE CHAN SOLVES A NEW MYSTERY
Better Little Book®; 1940. Hard cover. Standard size: 3 5/8" x 4 1/2" x 1 1/2"; 432 pages. Author: Unknown—adapted from the work of Earl Derr Biggers. Artist: Alfred Andriola. COLLECTOR'S NOTE: Cover title is different than title page (Inspector Charlie Chan Solves A New Mystery).
PLEASE NOTE: you are viewing high-contrast scans/images and even minor flaws will appear pronounced and unsightly.
Also, the scanner shading/tinting may be off-kilter, so please make allowances for that. If you like the image, you'll like the
BLB even better when it arrives! Expect the book(s) to look newer and fresher than depicted in this poor scanner image-- .................................. which in all likelihood is more faded in appearance.
FN/VF (see pic above). All pages are complete and supple (not brittle unless noted otherwise) and range between white to light tan. T may be a name written inside the cover which we might miss in listing. If so, it may be returned but it is not considered a grade-lowering defect.
ESTIMATED VALUE: 90
PLEASE NOTE: the book(s) above was stored inside a protective acrylic wrapper for years. Unfortunately, if you're seeing bent corners or tops/bottoms--it's a consequence of the wrapper tightening due to temperature changes, etc.. A lot of this storage bending can be undetectably reversed with careful dampening with white vinegar or lemon juice and gentle reshaping.
PLEASE READ: THIS AUCTION IS FOR ONE (1) BOOK ONLY -- AS TITLED AND DESCRIBED ABOVE. T are perhaps multiple BLBs shown above but this auction is NOT for all of them at once; again, only for the BLB/ITEM in the title and description. Some of these books are really SCARCE and RARE, especially in VF and NM grades, so be sure to check out every book now up. Once again each book has been listed with a low opening bid and NO RESERVE! So. . . good luck and have fun bidding!
