Whilst cataloguing paperbacks that I have had for years and have only just got round to sorting I check how many are available on line. Now and again I find books, or editions of books, that are hard to come by. Two of the rarer books in my last batch are George H Smith’s The Coming of the Rats and Brighton Belle by Arthur La Bern.
