Rocks and Minerals, 1966 edition. Series 536.
This book is written by Allen White, with lively, vibrant illustrations by Robert Ayton. It’s Ayton’s story-telling ability as an illustrator that makes a static subject dynamic and made me resolve, every year as a child, that that was the year I would start collecting rocks and fossils.
This matt copy dates to the late-1960s. It’s in very good condition inside but the back cover and spine are rather soiled and tired. It is an early edition (but not a first edition) with a tally number of 160. It has the original price of 2/6 printed inside.
