Once again, it’s a collection of vintage books being featured on this week’s Charity Vintage. This time there are 9 I-Spy News Chronicle books being auctioned as separate lots. They’re being sold by & in support of the Hospice of St Francis* who are based in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. They’ve promised that if you happen to win all 9 books, postage will be no more than £2.99.
The I-Spy News Chronicle books were published for children, (often as a tool to keep them occupied on journeys and days out) mainly in the 1950s & 60s. There were 40 in the series. Visit the I-Spy entry on Wikipedia to find out more. Someone has put together a Pinterest board containing lots of the vintage and reissued books by Michelin.
*The Hospice aims to bring peace, comfort and dignity to patients and families facing the crisis of serious illness. They offer assessment and skilled clinical care, respite breaks, home support, day care and bereavement support. Care is free of charge and a flexible and individual approach is made.
