Oliver Cromwell, 1963, Series 561 (DJ)


Oliver Cromwell is the 15th title in the 561 series, colourfully written by L du Garde Peach and illustrated by John Kenney.  In this colourful telling of the life of Cromwell, writer L du Garde Peach gives a very positive portrait of the main character, supported by Kenney’s lively illustrations.  If you remember from childhood Kenney’s picture of the young Cromwell fighting with the young Charles, you’ll find it very hard later on to accept that this is just a story and never actually happened.

This copy

With its original DJ (not price-clipped).  In Good condition inside and out.  There are some minor marks on the dj front panel and some more distinct ones on the back.  Neat name to title page, otherwise the book has clean pages.  I believe it to be a first edition – it is the last title listed on the back dj flap.
