The Shepherd Boy of Bethlehem was the 2nd book to be issued in series 522. (Other bible stories are to be found in an later Ladybird series: 606a.)
It was written by Lucy Diamon, illustrated by Kenneth Inns and was originally issued with a dust jacket. It’s a pity that Inns didn’t illustrate many books for Ladybird; he had a lovely touch and sense of colour.
This copy still has its original dustwrapper (not price-clipped). It’s a fairly early copy in excellent, clean condition. There’s surprisingly little wear to the DJ and the pages are very clean and tight. The book has blue, open-wing endpapers.
