Inside pages


This series of children's books were published in the 1960's and feature various forms of transport. They have approx 28 pages with most pages paired, a picture on the right and the description on the left. The subjects covered and the pictures are very evocative of the period.

The books have heavy card covers plus dust jackets. It is nice that the dust jackets have survived intact. Each book is 105 x 105mm

The photos show my current stock, I also have Tanks Book 2 and Planes Book 3 that are not illustrated. There is some wear to the dust jackets but generally these are in good condition.

Price 4.50 each. UK postage & packing 1.00 per book.
