Understanding the Sea Series 727


Understanding the Sea, Series 727, 1979.  Written by Denis Sanderson.  Illustrated by Sean Milne

This is the 6th book in the Conservation series, 727.  In some ways it is one of those books that straddles the old style and the new.  Although it has a modern style cover and layout, many of the illustrations have the precision and appeal of the ‘golden-age’ Ladybird books.

These books were, in many ways, ahead of their time with their focus on the dangers of neglecting our environment.  This was a topic close to the heart of Editorial Director Douglas Keen.  It is no coincidence that these books, filled with warnings about the need to take action on the environment, came out at the time of his retirement.  He was determined that this message should be emphasised before he left.
