DON'T PAY $348...Mine LESS THAN half price

2 posts in this topic

Hello ladies,

In a nutshell...the set I am selling is the same as this one listed on eBay by someone else for $348...though mine seems in better condition.

I am asking less than half that price...$160

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/293000181022?ul_noapp=true

 

COMPLETE SET of AUSTRALIAN PICTORIAL SOCIAL STUDIES - 25 booklets - 1958 edition

$160 for the complete set

HIGHLY recommended by homeschoolers....I have sold about 6 sets so far, to very happy customers

Australian history in QUALITY *comics strip* format, told for children.

An investment you will NOT regret.!!

A superb supplement to any curriculum

It is very rare to find either of the editions in such fine condition. Mine is also the better of the two editions....more details below...

it is very rare to find it in this pristine condition, with clean pages and no writing, scribbles, tears, loose pages*, stains etc, which is amazing as it was printed in 1958!

Ideal for reluctant learners...suitable for children and adolescents alike

Each of the twenty-five booklets has a sturdy cardboard cover and approximately 32 pages.

Many of the booklets have a colour, double-paged spread in the middle...either a relevant map or painting.

The two Parents' Guides include crosswords, games, review questions to consolidate learning etc.

 

They were republished in the 1960s in an inferior format, with a flimsier cover and smaller overall, such as the ones shown here in this excellent review:

individual titles recommended by AUSTRALIAN HISTORY IN PICTURES author

Take a look at some reviews/photos of the superb artwork, or good puzzles etc, inside...some are the 1960s edition:
