Hunting for treasure is an exciting game - but it was not just a game for Joey and Ben.
They were hunting real treasure - jewelry abandoned in the marshes of Kent by
a party of Royalists fleeing from Cromwell's soldiers.|
Unfortunately for the boys there were other treasure-seekers abroad on the marshes - men who
would stop at nothing to get what they wanted.
Dustwrapper full colour front and spine, plain blue rear with Nelson logo.
Both our copies are dated 1957 and have the cover price of 2/6 net printed in black on the front flap of the non-clipped wrapper. Oddly, both copies list up to Joey: Soap Box Driver on the rear flaps (a book published the following year) so either these are reprints or, more likely, the publisher has prelisted the book next to be published.
