Grosset & Dunlap, 1954. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #108090
The first edition in the incredibly rare first issue dust jacket, with the five Tom Swift titles on the back panel. Matches Carpentieri 1954A-1 point for point. In our experience, by far the rarest Hardy Boys first edition, the stopper for virtually every collection, so much so that collectors prefer to act like it does not exist. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket.
