Title: BBC Childrens Annual 1955
Author: Freda Lingstrom, et al.
Year: 1954 (First Edition)
Condition: Very Good
Jacket Condition: Good
Description: The annual is comprised of many stories and articles (including photo-taking techniques and instructions for building a pair of stilts), and is illustrated throughout with a mixture of black and white, greyscale, two-tone monochrome, and three-colour pictures as well as black and white photographs and five excellent full-colour illustrations. Also included are a number of quizzes and puzzles. All are untouched, save two which have been partially coloured in using watercolours.
The pastedowns and endpapers are illustrated and contain musical scores and lyrics for three Christmas songs (including Good King Wenceslas).
Very good copy of an extremely rare annual. Dust jacket has not been price clipped (bears original price of 7/6), but is slightly torn around edges with two small fingerprint marks on front and back. Pages are slightly tanned, though generally free from foxing – a handful have 'rust patches'. Binding mostly tight with no loose pages.
