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 As a result, some of his illustrations – though beautiful and as realistic as you’d expect, look a bit out of date for the 1970s.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