Rather than write about the books or give a glossary of dust jackets which are already excellently covered in other websites found in the Links section, I am going to devote this section to a “treasure trove” of extra items I have been lucky enough to obtain through people reading my book and if you would like to share any of your finds I would be pleased to include them. All I need is a photo/description and my webmaster will do the rest.

 

Please note I do not expect these images to be copied or used for financial or other gain but I would be pleased to help with any requests from enthusiasts.

 


 

The Observer Wall Chart

The above pictures show the wall chart . The original is slightly bigger than the reproduced poster which was done by Peregrine Books.

 

 


 

A Reproduced Cathedrals Book

 

 

Description: Description: Description: Description: http://breydonbooks.co.uk/pictures/cathedrals.jpg               Description: Description: Description: Description: http://breydonbooks.co.uk/pictures/cathfoto.jpg

 

 

This reproduction was from the b/w photo used to advertise the new title before it appeared in the usual format. Or is there an authentic Warne one out there ?

 

 


 

Observer's Catalogue

The above show the Catalogue which was used to advertise these books. I bought this from E-Bay for GBP100 several years ago, what would it fetch now ??? There must be some more out there !

 

 


 

Observer's Cards

 

 

 

            Description: Description: Description: Description: http://breydonbooks.co.uk/pictures/cards.JPG

 

 

The above picture depicts the Observer's picture cards series, in this case "Tales of the Wild Folk." Does anyone have these in their collection?

 

 


 

Boxed Sets

 

 

Description: Description: Description: Description: http://breydonbooks.co.uk/pictures/boxed.JPG

 

 

The Nature Field Series. An example of one of the boxed sets I have managed to obtain over the years. Does anyone have any others?

 

 


 

 

 

Description: Description: Description: Description: http://breydonbooks.co.uk/pictures/cats.JPG

 

This picture is quite interesting. When I studied the Cathedrals photo I could only see the front and spine. However, when you look at the Cats book photo it definitely looks as though it is a complete cover rather than a  “mock-up”. The Music book was published so why not the Cats? The Cats only appears in the laminated version yet the Music was never done in a laminated edition ?

 There was a black copy of the Churches book sold recently on E-Bay . Has any-one else seen one ?
