Charming vintage children’s book- Introducing Beethoven

Charming vintage children’s book- Introducing Beethoven.

Bbook

This little book, published in 1963,  is quite a rare edition, which I got for 10p at a second hand book store about 3 years ago. It has line drawings throughout  by  J.J Crockford ( who i can’t find anything about online). It was one of the first books in my Beethoven collection; despite it being for children it is appealing to adults too- full of anecdotes about Ludwig’s life and character:
