Ladybird Science : Simple Mechanics, Simple Chemistry, Botany and Weather (4 Titles, 1980s)

£12.99

Product description

Four books from the delightful Ladybird Science Series 621 from the 1980s. Glossy pictorial covers (no dust wrappers). Lots of full colour illustrations together with useful indexes.

Still of interest both as basic information and to show how things have changed in 30 years.

Like all Ladybird books determining the date a specific book was published requires an element of detective work:

- Weather. First published in 1985. The printed price on the rear cover is 85p which denotes a printing date of 1987.
- Simple Chemistry. First published in 1987. The printed price on the rear cover is 85p which denotes a printing date of 1987, thus a likely first edition.
- Simple Mechanics. First published in 1987. The printed price on the rear cover is 85p which denotes a printing date of 1987, thus a likely first edition.
- Botany. First published in 1988. No printed price on rear cover. Slight yellow tinge to the cover.

All in a good clean condition with very little sign of wear. No annotations.
