Midas and the Marshall Family - Marie ThorndyckLondon, Toronto, Wellington & Sydney: George G. Harrap & Co., 1958, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Plain paper dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a little loss to the top corners and head of the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned.
From the cover: “This story is about five children, cousins, who find themselves at a loose end in London during the absence of their parents.
Most of their efforts to amuse themselves end in disaster, and their attempts to avoid mischief are not helped by the finding of a gold nugget, which they feel sure is the key to all power and wealth.
How the mysterious acquisition of ‘gold’ affects them makes a delightful adventure story.”
