#1 in this popular juvenile boys series. This edition is a 1959B-50. It is the introduction to the 3rd cover art, 1st printing of the revised text having 22 chapters instead of the normal 24 or 25. Revised statement is on the copyright page. 5 plain paper illustrations plus the front piece. Book is tan tweed with the dark brown lettering on front cover with emblem and author's name. Bottom spine is slightly rolled, top spine is VG, as are the 4 corners. 180 pages all clean and tight. DJ is in brodart slipcover and is fair. DJ is wrapped through the spine, with same boys emblem in the red circle, but now below it says Hardy Boys Series, instead of Hardy Boys Stories, the volume number is directly under that and then the publisher. Lettering is all in white. Flap folds, top/bottom have tiny chipping, top/bottom spine and minor chipping and wearing is evident on the bottom fron edge. Top front edge has a small closed tear near the spine edge. Back cover bottom edge has small piece of tape and top edge has minor wearing.
