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 As a result, some of his illustrations – though beautiful and as realistic as you’d expect, look a bit out of date for the 1970s.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 good condition inside and out. There’s a scuff to the spine, light shelf wear to back cover and inside some foxing/discoloration to the first few pages, especially to the the title page. The later pages are clean and tight. It dates from the early 1970s and has the original price of 15p on the back.
