The Wonder Book of Animals for Boys and Girls
8 The Wonder Book of Animals for Boys and Girls
London and Melbourne Ward, Lock and Co. Limited [1939] Hardcover Good + fair Jacket Ernest Aris, Dorothy Bishop et al 
With 8 colour plates and nearly 300 other illustrations this is a nicely presented volume. The animals covered range from dogs, birds, fish to wild animals. Some of the illustrations come from photos and in addition there are drawings by Ernest Aris, Dorothy Bishop and Frank M. Williamson. Ward Lock published Wonder Books from 1905 right through until the 1960's. There were general picture annuals as well as specialist volumes such as this one. They are generally characterised by the profuse illustrations contained within and the gold rear board. This volume has end paper illustrations by Thomas Maybank (1869-1929). Maybank illustrated many of the books in the ‘wonder-book’ series and is perhaps best known as an illustrator for the humorous and satirical magazine Punch.

The World and Its People: Little Folks of Other Lands
10 The World and Its People: Little Folks of Other Lands
London, Edinburgh and New York T. Nelson & Sons Ltd. 1920 Decorative Cloth Good W. Foster et al 
Contains 12 full page colour illustrations and many more part page colour and black and white illustrations. Divided into three main sections: Little Folks in Hot, Cool and Cold Lands, it really is quite a far ranging cultural study from a period in time, i.e. 1920. Everything is based upon the colour of the children, be it white, brown, black, red and yellow, but from this starting position there is a remarkable amount of social and cultural information that is explained. The illustrations really help the descriptions and it appears that some of the illustrations are based upon photographs. Corners worn, top / bottom of spine bumped. Some grubbiness to boards and internally with the occasionaly closed tear. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
