It’s been a bit of a dairy-centric day at the bookshop. After my earlier discovery of literature promoting southern Scandinavian cheese products, these three beautiful pamphlets emerged from another box of donations. I must have had milk on the brain. But then again, I was friesian in there, and unpacking books meant I was moo-ving about a bit. I only semi-skimmed these ones, but I made sure to cream them off from the rest of the stock. Surely someone must want to pur-cheese this little set? I think that the illustrations are udder-ly beautiful.
Each one carries the following on the back cover:
Published by the National Dairy Council.
Melbourne House, Aldwych, London WC2.

I’m going to separate these three and wrap them together. They’re in near mint condition. Drop me a line via the comments box if you’d be interested in them. We’ve talked about uploading the shop’s small but growing inventory of first editions to Abe Books or similar, but at the moment I suspect the subscription costs would be too high.
I leave you with my favourite cover design of the day, and a scan of a loose inside sheet. If the inside sheet was originally published with the book (and I suspect it was) we have an extremely rare complete document here.
Regardless of historical or monetary value, that’s one cool cover design, and one surreal title for an educational booklet.
