The Story of Joseph, Series 522 (DJ)


The Story of Joseph was the 4th book to be issued in series 522.  (Other bible stories are to be found in an later Ladybird series: 606a.)

It was written by Lucy Diamon, illustrated by Kenneth Inns and was originally issued with a dust jacket.   It’s a pity that Inns didn’t illustrate many books for Ladybird; he had a lovely touch and sense of colour.

This copy still has it’s original dustwrapper, price-clipped and in fair/good.  It’s frayed head and food to spine panel, peeling at head of spine and grubby, especially on back panel.  Inside though, the book is in good condition.  There’s a brown line drawing on the front.  The endpapers are grey-brown open wing logo and the doodle you can see in the photo has now been largely erased.  There’s a name on the first free endpaper.  Being an older edition – the illustrations are particularly bright and luminous.  Being an early edition, it has a catalogue page in the back, with some titles underlined in pencil.  The last title listed in ‘The Farm’.
