The Policeman 1962 was the 2nd book to be issued in series 606b. It was written by I & J Havenhand and, like all the books in this series, was beautifully, lovingly illustrated by John Berry. This is a beautiful, evocative book which shows Britain very much in the spirit of ‘Dixon of Dock Green’. It was revised in 1972 to update it and it’s interesting to browse both original and revised version side by side and to note the different ideas of police equipment, police vehicles and what a villain probably looks like.
This copy is in good condition. The dustwrapper is rather tired – especially the spine panel which is worn and chipped. The book is in good condition with just a neat name to the endpapers. I believe this copy to be a 1st edition.
