Brownie Guides was the 3rd book to be issued in series 706 – Scouting and Guiding. . It was written by Nancy Scott. Unfortunately, it dates from the era when Ladybird was trying to save costs and modernise so the beautiful John Berry illustrations of the earlier books in this series were mainly replaced with less attractive photographs. Still, you were a Brownie in the 1970s or early 80s, this book is bound to bring back lots of memories. I was a Brownie in the 1970s for a short while. I had the outfit just like this – but had the rather jaunty beret instead of (it seemed to me) that daft bobble hat.
This copy is in just-about-good condition, inside and out. There’s some extra spine wear and some spine damage to base of spine, now repaired. Knocks and bumps to corners and pen mark on back. Inside an owner’s name on the title page. It dates from the late-1970s and has the original price 30p stamped on the back.
