The Children's Illustrated Dictionary - A. A. Nash (c.1950) - vintage educational book (SOLD)
A charmingly illustrated mid-20th century vintage children's reference book, "containing more than 600 separate full-colour pictures of interesting objects, people, animals, birds, flowers and things in everyday use, each subject clearly described in simple words"; the children's clothes, and several of the objects depicted (and one or two of the words themselves, including "gramophone"), reflect the era from which this book dates.
Although this genuine original vintage book shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible - and a delightful and displayable piece of collectable childhood memorabilia.
