Couldn't find any information on R.M. Turvey who created these beautiful pictures for thi and a number of other Nicolas Bebbington books. This is a first edition book and the printing quality is superb but, annoyingly, the publication date is nowhere to be found! - perhaps there is a page missing. I am guessing from a quick search on the internet that it was published in the mid to late 1940's.
Hidden treasure - My publisher found a box – with 18 signed and doodled copies of the first edition of ”The second in line”
