Made and printed in Britain by William Clowes and Sons, Ltd; these readers show signs of water damage and sticky pages. But the text! and the illustrations! All fascinating.
The readers would make a great art project- or – are simply collectible as a snap-shot of English education in the 50s. The images alone are worth framing- quintessential 50s illustrative descriptions of an England that was.
The readers set is for sale: $AU40
