Dr Who

Dr Who Annual 1967 108

Like many “perfect bound” books the binding of this copy is less than perfect, though complete some pages are loose. If this book wasn’t so rare (the 2nd annual) I might have scrapped it. There is no illustration of this cover on ABE. I am offering it at £5.00.

I have many other Dr Who Annuals, paperbacks and magazines in stock. This list is just a sample.

Bedford & Vauxhall Military Vehicles

Kaleidoscope of Bedford & Vauxhall Military Vehicles by BH Vanderveen Published by Warne in 1982

Bedford and 036

I love the endpapers (old ads) in this 96 page 12″ X 8″ very well illustrated book. For sale in my shop (or on line) for £25.00 (P&P free to UK).

Spen Valley & Dewsbury (two books)

Dewsbury as it Was and Spen Valley a landscape of hamlets, written by Christopher Scargill and Richard Lee (I worked with Richard at Metro in the early eighties before it was sold off for a bargain price).

Both books are 12 X 8 (inches that is) and both are very well illustrated.Dewsbury as it was 011The pages are not numbered but there are 66 illustrations. Given how big Dewsbury is this should be the more common book but isn’t. published 1985

In this one the illustrations aren’t numbered but the pages are (48) but just as well illustrated. published 1986

There are no inscriptions or stamps both look new and are available for £7.00 each.

Where is “Not in Heckmondwike”?

For those who have wondered (not physically) if it is “Not in Heckmondwike” where is it? The answer is Liversedge, which probably explains this card used as a bookmark. The writing reads ; ZURICA given by Liversedge Parish Church armature Operatic Society 1914.
Questions arise; How many lads survived the war? How many are grand or great grand parents of current Liversedge inhabitants?
Shows what folks did BMP (Before Mobile Phones) and I bet the lads had a great time, outnumbered 2 to 1.

A Modern Morality Tale

Whilst moving books to allow the window fitters to fit a window, my wife and I were overjoyed when we found a five pence piece, only to have our celebrations cut short when we realised it was a Dutch five cent. To exasperate matters it was pre Euro.
However this story has a happy ending because about an hour later we did find a real 5p.
The end of this story is that the windows and door have been renewed. All I need to do now is put all the books somewhere that might allow customers into the shop. A couple of weeks at the very most optimistic.

More Paperbacks to Whet the appetite of the discerning reader.

 

From Conan to Prehistoric man, come to think of it not probably all that far. The rarest book today is Edgar Mowrers  – Germany Puts the Clock Back – the first Penguin Special and on a different vein HG Wells – The Cone. The Arabs in History by Bernard Lewis is also a rare title. Not that any of the other books are common in these formats.SC 11112018
