There were just 3 books in the 606G ‘Come to’ series – and this is the first of them. This book 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 As a result, some of his illustrations – though beautiful and as realistic as you’d expect, look a bit out of date for the 1970s.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 VG condition inside and out with only light wear to the covers – although there’s a small nick in the spine edge – and nice, clean pages. It dates from around 1970 and has the original price of 2/6 revised to 12.5p on the back.
