The Ladybird Book of London was the one and only title in series 618 – (although it was later moved across to join the ‘Learnabout’ books, series 634, where it was re-written and re-illustrated – with photographs replacing the beautiful John Berry illustrations which are the best part of the original book). This version – the original – is full of the gentle, nostalgic charm of a faded postcard found in a vintage book.
This was the first title that Berry illustrated for Ladybird and was originally issued with a dustwrapper.
This matt copy is in very good condition inside and out. Not much wear and nice clean pages. There’s a small price sticker on the back cover (see photo). This would probably come off cleanly with a dab of white spirit. This copy dates to the early 1960s and has an original price of 2/6 printed inside.
