Lesley Gordon

Another Swift Annual author...

Lesley Gordon wrote and illustrated a feature in Swift Annual 5 (1958). There were a handful of small books published as early as 1937 which may be by the same author and, after a gap of some years, a lot of books on gardening and folklore about plants. Could be the same author but I've not been able to find anything on the web.
