The Story or our Rocks and Minerals, 1966


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.
