Longmans Colour Geographies [GB. 1956]Longmans Colour Geographies
printed in Great Britain, 1956

Units 1 to 5 of the Longmans Colour Geographies, these are school readers from the 50s.

Unit 1- Coasts of Britain
Unit 2- Farms of Britain
Unit 3- Towns of Britain
Unit 4- Industry in Britain
Unit 5 – London.

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
