Large chip to jacket front obscuring author's name, chip along top edge of jacket partially obscuring title; top corner of rear jacket flap missing; smaller chips to jacket spine-head, jacket spine-base and top edge of jacket rear. Spine slightly cocked, pencil gift note on second blank. 1918 Hard Cover. 254 pp. It all began because Tess Kenway became suddenly and deeply interested in aeroplanes, airships and all sort of flying things, as Dot, the smallest Corner House girl, declared. Perhaps one should modify that suddenly; for Tess had begun to think about flying-as a profession-as long ago as the winter before (and that was really a long time for a little girl of her age) when she had acted as Swiftwing the Hummingbird in the children's play of The Carnation Countess. Four girls from eight to fourteen years of age receive word that a rich bachelor uncle has died, leaving them the old Corner House he occupied. They move into it and then the fun begins. What they find and do will provoke many a hearty laugh. Later, they enter school and make many friends. One of these invites the girls to spend a few weeks at a bungalow owned by her parents, and the adventures they meet with make very interesting reading. Clean, wholesome stories of humor and adventure, sure to appeal to all young girls. -- from a Barse advertisement
