Understanding Maps was the one and only title in series 671 – although it was later moved across to join the later ‘Learnabout’ books, series 634, where it was given the uniform yellow board cover and renamed as ‘Maps’.
It was written by Nancy Scott and illustrated by Ronald Lampitt. Lampitt was an inspired choice to illustate this book. He had worked in Intelligence during the war and, in all probability, it was there that he honed his gift for making topographical images also work as appealing and attractive pictures – easy to ‘read’ by all.
This matt copy is in excellent condition, inside and out. Very slight discolouration and the odd rub mark or age spot but exceptionally clean and tight pages. It dates to the late 1960s and has an original price of 2/6 stamped on the back.
