The Ladybird Book of Trees, 1963, Series 536.
This was the 13th book in the Nature series, 536, and was originally issued with a dustwrapper. It was written by Brian Vesey-Fitzgerald and was beautifully illustrated by S R Badmin. It’s the only book that Badmin illustrated for Ladybird, which is a real pity.
This copy still has its original DJ which is in good condition. Inside there’s the shadow of an erased name on the endpapers and a large, ugly owner’s name on the title page – see photo. the title page vignette has been coloured in and there are some dirty marks on the back DJ flap (see photos). The reading pages are very good condition. It may well be a first edition.
