London, 1961 (matt)


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.
