The Penguin Classified List 1962:
The prose is dry and perfunctory, but sometimes revealing of the period — the book Minds and Machines isn't about computers, it's about "computing machines", inverted commas and all; that good old-fashioned word "gay" gets splashed about without a trace of self-consciousness. The range of books is startling by modern standards, with handbooks on growing dahlias and delphiniums, a guide to trade unions in post-colonial Africa, a study of the Hittites, a Puffin cut-out book of the Olivier Hamlet — "Mummy, Peter tore the head off my Felix Aylmer!" No, I'm not seeing it.
A pointless thing, I suppose, but a very sweet cover by Brian Wildsmith.
Copies aren't hard to find on the web, though I hadn't come across it before stumbling on this one, £1.99 at Oxfam Dalston.
