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  As a result, some of his illustrations – though beautiful and as realistic as you’d expect,  look a bit out of date for the 1970s.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 is  in really very good condition – better than the picture suggests because the marks on the spine are just colour flakes and not scuffs.   In fact this copy of a hard-to-find title has very little wear to the covers and lovely, clean pages.  If it isn’t a first edition, it’s a very early copy because it has the original price of 15p on the back.
