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 As a result, some of his illustrations – though beautiful and as realistic as you’d expect, look a bit out of date for the 1970s.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).
