I am delighted to introduce a selection of highly collectable vintage Ladybird books to Get Smitten as I acquired an entire collection on a recent fabric and prop buying hunt!

The Ladybird books are an ubiquitous part of British childhood history. Since the 1940s, children have been learning from and with these well loved and beautifully illustrated hardback books, covering a multitude of subjects and themes. They have become highly sought after in recent years - particularly the 1970s versions

This listing is for a 1973, 2nd edition, matt hard back cover Ladybird book, from the How It Works series, entitled The Telephone, by David Carey with illustrations by B. H. Robinson

It is from the Series 654 collection, ISBN number 0721403093 with the printed price 15p on the reverse, first published in 1972

It is in excellent condition throughout but has Xmas 1977 handwritten in small text on the inside cover

"This book explains in simple terms how our telephone systems work and how we can make the best use of them. It also gives many interesting facts about the world-wide telephone service which through submarine cables, radio links and satellites enables us to speak with people many thousands of miles away.
The author wishes to thank the Post Office for their kind help in providing the information on which this book is based."

Really lovely kit. I am a total beginner and managed this (with help from my reluctant better half 😄). The end result is so pretty, and even though we haven’t done it perfect I just love that we made it ourselves and I will enjoy putting this up every autumn.

I don't like leaving reviews; and what's more, I've really no time for sea views either. Hence, I suppose, my delay in commenting. As such, the purchase-process-delivery, was double-quick smart - packaged with care and consideration... ... And as pour le fabrique: the cat's whiskers! Therein, I did privately message Lisa my thanks, and was met by a tremendous esprit de generosite. Bravo!!
