The Ambush, 1955, Series 549. A Ladybird Robin Hood Adventure
There were only ever really two books in this series, although in the 1970s another 4 Robin Hood adventure books were added. These later books were in a different format and with different style illustrations. The illustrations in the original two books (The Silver Arrow and The Ambush) are super-evocative. These were probably the first two books ever illustrated by John Kenney for Ladybird and the colours sing – and both were originally issued with dustwrappers. The stories were retold by Max Kester. A tip for collectors is not to fall into the trap of thinking you have found a book inscribed by the author. All editions of these stories (and some othrers of the same era) contain a reproduced signature that looks very real.
This matt copy dates to the late 1960s and was originally priced at 2/6. It in very good condition generally – inside and out.
