Author: The Ladybird Series
Special Attributes: 1st Edition Publisher: Wills & Hepworth
Date of Publication: C1915-18 Format: Board Book

This a very rare early Ladybird book from the WW1 period (being pre 1940 period and published by Wills & Hepworth although no publisher details are listed on the actual book)

Has "The Ladybird Series" on the bottom left of the front cover

The book measures 10" x 8" and has paste down illustrated covers

The book contains three stories: "The Brave Tin Soldier", "Little Tiny" and "The Top and The Ball"
and is illustrated with various drawings

The inside front cover illustration has been tastefully partly coloured in and has an inscription along the bottom. Tiny piece of the bottom of spine cover is missing and the front cover is partly loose.

These early versions of the Ladybird books are very rare, as there even no records of which books were produced!
