A LADYBIRD 'STORY IN VERSE BOOK' BOOK

This is one of a small collection of early and highly collectable Ladybird Books I have listed for sale.

 

Condition does vary between books - this one is graded 'acceptable' (please see photograph).


NB: First published in 1940, this is only the second book in Series 401 to be published and is a 1943 (Fourth edition - revised) copy which also has the very early illustrated end papers. Apart from the 'faults' detailed above, internally this book is in relatively good condition for being 60 years old and as described by Ladybird themselves, is one of the rarer books to be published - is a highly collectable and hard to find copy!



PLEASE SEE MY OTHER AUCTIONS FOR MORE VINTAGE TITLES IN THE LADYBIRD SERIES
