I adored this set of encyclopaedias as a child. I still like to browse through them from time to time. My set have red covers and date from the early 1950s I think. My Dad picked them up for a pittance at some auction in the 1970s. There is a little bit of everything in these from the expected general knowledge to stories, sheet music and recipes.

My mother bought these in a second hand shop in the 1970's. The whole set of ten encylopedias cost her $2 (AUD). I pored over them constantly. At the time I didn't realise they were so old. I remember sections of questions and answers, such as, "Why is the sky blue". These were my favorite parts.

I don't have the set. My mother read it to me when I was young, My parents kept it at 30 Ann Arbour Road. I think my Grandfather Battrick originally had it. There was the story of Arty the Dragon.
