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 only fair condition externally – rather grubby boards, rubbing and a scar to the cover. Inside it’s better – less wear and generally clean pages (see photos).

This copy dates to the early 1960s and has an original price of 2/6 printed inside.
