How Nell Scored
by Bessie Marchant. London: Thomas Nelson & Sons.(The ‘Peerless Series’). nd. c.1950.
The evergreen Bessie Marchant has supplied my collection with a few gems, this and Nancy Afloat were founding acquisitions. This one must have been very popular: I keep finding copies. This particular one was given as a Christmas gift in 1955.
The illustrator is not given, but the signature on the jacket looks like ‘Johnstone’ or similar.
