Frank Merriwells Chums Tried and True Burt L. Standish
Vintage hardcover children's book. 1970s reprint of a series of books by Burt L. Standish, from the 1890s to the early 1900s. Full title is Frank Merriwell's Chums or Tried and True. This is number 2 in the Frank Merriwell series of books.
Promoted as books for young men, the Merriwell series are stories about Frank and D ick Merriwell. Inside back cover states that these books of the Merriwell brothers will attest the unfailing interest and wholesomeness of these adventures of two lads of high ideals, who play fair with themselves, as well as the rest of the world.
The back cover indicates that these were books your fathers read and thrilled to. (Likely books your grandfathers read since they are almost 40 years old.)
The book looks like it has not been read, just kept on a shelf for a long time. The spine is tanned along with the top edge and a little on the front and back cover. 251 pages, all clean and unmarked. Binding is good, no loose pages. Some dots of uneven color on the red tipped pages. Book is in good condition overall.
Books will usually be shipped in bubble envelopes.
US shipping via USPS Media Mail. It is the least expensive route but takes longer than Priority Mail.
International shipping via USPS First Class Mail.
Excess shipping charges paid will be refunded.

Valerie is SO awesome! I ordered these lovely Tupperware mugs and then life caught up and I lost track of the time. She contacted me to inquire if I had yet received my order which had shipped USPS Priority and was DAYS overdue! She followed up, too!
Very conscientious as a seller, friendly, great communication! EXCELLENT customer service!
Bonus: The mugs arrived (finally-USPS epic fail) well packaged, clearly marked, well wrapped AND they are LOVELY! It just doesn't get any better than this!
Thank you so much, Valerie! You are awesome!!!
