The Ladybird book of Pets, 1957 (Matt)


The Ladybird Book of Pets, 1957,  Series 536.

This is the 5th book in the Nature series, 536.  Pets was written by George Cansdale and is the only Ladybird book ever illustrated by Edward Osmond.  The earliest editions of this book were published with a dust-wrapper.

This book has a very soft, fuzzy focus which give a very nostalgic glow to the illustrations.  The choice of pets is sometimes interesting.  A pigeon is included, as is a hedgehog and a goat.
