Description: "Why does it rain? What can we learn from the clouds? What IS a 'depression over Iceland'? How does a barometer work? These are some of the questions answered in this beautiful little book about British weather. The skilfully prepared text and twenty-four full-page pictures and diagrams in colour explain clearly the causes of our climate and the principles of weather forecasting. As a guide to the ever-interesting subject of the weather, or as a simple introduction to the science of meteorology, this splendid book will fascinate children—and their parents too."
Matt pictorial boards are in remarkably good condition for their age, with only the slightest of wear to rear cover. Spine and corners very lightly bumped. The previous owner decided to tear out a roughly semi-circular section from the head of the title page (no doubt their name had been inscribed there), but this hasn't affected the main body of text on the page overleaf. Otherwise all other pages are in immaculate condition: crisp, bright, and free from all defect. Super-tight binding.
This reprint dates from 1971.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.5″). 12mo. 51 pp.
