Uncle Mac's Ladybird ABC Book

£60.00

Product description

A rare early edition of one of the first Ladybird books. Published in the 1950s, this is a very early Ladybird book with the open-winged ladybird logo and decorated end-papers in the form of alphabet blocks. No dust jacket.

Includes an introduction from Derek McCulloch familiar to all as 'Uncle Mac' from children's radio. Each letter of the alphabet has a few simple words together with a lovely coloured illustration by Sep E Scott.

Clearly a very well loved book with some damage to the outside covers and spine. The cover has been hand-coloured with marks and discolouration. However internal pages are complete and in a good condition.
