Great Civilisations The Aztecs was one of the last books in the long-running Ladybird history series. It was written by Brenda Ralph Lewis and illustrated by Robert Ayton. I remember this book from a project at school. The opening scene of human sacrifice frightened the heck out of me. Still does, to be honest.
There were 6 different titles in the Great Civilisations books, and I’m sure most of them were the basis of many a school project in the 70s and 80s. Dating from after the sale of the company in the early 1970s, the look and layout of the book are different – mainly because text and illustration are not kept separate. This book was only ever issued with this style of cover.
This book has laminated boards; it’s in excellent, nearly-new condition inside and out. It probably dates from the 1980s and has the original price of 85p on the back.
