The Story of the Spider, 1980, Series 651.
This is the 8th book in the Natural History series, 651 and is probably the hardest to find. The Story of the Spider was written by John Paull and was illustrated partly traditionally and partly with photographs by a range of people including Pat Oakley and Hurlston Design. At this period Ladybird was moving away from its traditional book format and approach to illustrations – but, although spiders aren’t my thing, there are some beautiful, high-quality illustrations which hark back to the golden years.
This matt copy dates to the early 1980s. It’s in very good condition inside and out and is a nice, clean copy. It has an original price of 50p stamped on the back
