The Musicians of Bremen. Illustrated by Robert Lumley et al. This book stands out in the series as being a little different from the others and there’s a bit of mystery about it. The illustrations – although very vivid and full of character – look a little bit sketchy and unfinished. The book was published in 1974 and, although artist Lumley was killed suddenly in a car accident, this was two years later and can’t explain why another artist (John Berry) was drafted in to put the finishing touch to some of the illustrations. The last of the original 27 Well Loved Tales.
A very nice copy of this hard-to-find title. Although two of the corners look heavily rubbed, the boards otherwise are in very good shape. The odd mark on otherwise clean pages. (One page has well-repaired tear). It dates to the mid-1970s and has an original price of 24p stamped on the back.
