Insects and Small Animals, 1972


Insects and Small Animals, 1972,  Series 651.

This is the 5th book in the Natural History series, 651. Insects and Small Animals was written by Romola Showell and illustrated by Ronald Lampitt.   Although the illustrations have Lampitt’s refreshing clarity, this book lacks something of the charm of earlier books in this series and doesn’t make the best use of Lampitt’s talents.

This matt copy dates to the early 1970s.  It’s in good condition inside and out – thre’s an inch-long nick to the spine and a name to the front endpapers.  The reading pages are very nice and.  It has an original price of 15p printed on the back and, with a tally number of 320, I believe it to be a first edition.
