These are good books to own and have on ones bookshelf.
I know since I have the majority of them!
But i simply would not pay over the odds for any!

Regards and beware of auction lots!

Currently at £155...add nearly 24% sales tax and of the order of £40 to courier if you aren't local and it's become a costly, if desirable, set of books. Not something I could finesse past my better halfInnocent

Ian Tyler's books are fetching some amazing prices at the moment I only have 1 left of his for sale. Some of the other titles are not so scarce
