    Franklin W. Dixon. The House on the Cliff. New York: Grosset & Dunlap Publishers, 1927.

    First edition, first issue. Twelvemo. iv, 212, 8 [publisher's catalog] pages. Engraved frontispiece by Walter S. Rogers.

    Publisher's red cloth boards lettered in black and gilt on the front cover, with black shield design, and lettered in black on the spine. All first issue points listed in Carpentieri present: red cloth boards, plain endpapers, "Bpt" at the bottom of page 137, and the first issue publisher's catalog. Minor wear to the edges and corners of the boards. Mild toning and thumb-soiling on the text edges. The dust jacket shows some toning, dust-soiling, and mild abrading along the spine, affecting the "F." in "F. W. DIXON". Some separation at the folds, but still sound and in one piece. Minimal chipping along the edges of the jacket. A very good copy of a book rarely seen with the dust jacket. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
