Through-the-Ages: Transport


‘Through the Ages’ Transport was the second of the two ‘Through the Ages’ books, series 606f.  It was written by Muriel Goaman and was illustrated by Frank Hampson.  As ever, Hampson brings his vivid imagination to the story, creating drama and humour to the scenes of the book.  Scale, drama, colour and impact all take precedence over accuracy and scale in this book (a favourite topic for Ladybird over the years) but I love it for this reason.

This copy:

Matt boards.  It is just about in good condition although there’s a lot of edge wear and the odd crease, scratch and minor blemish.  Open it up and you will find a nice clean copy.  It dates from the early 1970s and has an original price of 18p on the back.
