Scope and Content

File of correspondence between Leila Berg and various publishing companies, charting her attempts to get the 'Small World' books back into print following the Methuen editions going out of print. The file includes correspondence with Hamish Hamilton, Penguin Books, Hodder Children's Books, and Cambridge University Press. It would appear from some notes in the file that Penguin Books considered re-issuing the series, and the file includes complete sets of photocopied spreads for 'Worms' and 'Bees', with new artwork by Lisa Kopper. These appear to have been done for Penguin Books, but the new editions of the books were never published.
