Come to Denmark: Series 606G, 1971


There were just 3 books in the 606G ‘Come to’ series – and this is the last of them.  It was written by Irene Dark and all three were illustrated by John Berry.   They were produced at a time when foreign travel was much less common and so when fairly close European neighbours still held fascinarion ans mystique.  Artist John Berry wasn’t sent abroad to illustrate them; his pictures are based on whatever reference pictures he could find in press-cuttings, travel books and postcards.  As a result, some of his illustrations – though beautiful and as realistic as you’d expect,  look a bit out of date for the 1970s.

This matt copy of a hard-to-find title is  in good/vg condition – rubbing and a scuff to the spine and faint mark on cover (see photos).  Inside the pages are clean and unmarked.  With a tally number of 280 it may be a first edition but it’s hard to know as the price has been revised twice (up to 18p).
