I'm pleased to advise that the 3rd Edition of Cwmorthin Slate Quarry has just arrived from the printers and is now available from myself , I have had printed just 100 copies. There are a few bits of additional information and it is now in A4 format with a distinctive green cover, but printed on Art paper and well produced cost is £15.00 + postage and packing and the first few copies will be signed by Graham Isherwood the author.

Thanks must go to Peter Burgess for completing all the work to get this out and for Graham Isherwood for providing copies of the text and photos which had unfortunately been lost due to the original printer no longer in business

Apologies for the long delay - I almost bit off more than I could chew, due to having other things to eat. Big Grin

It's done now and I am glad it has worked out OK.

I meant to say there is a folded A3 plan enclosed this will loose rather than paying for it to be trimmed and pasted in which may be of more use for you to copy anyway but do not lose as there are no spares

Cwmorthin new edition - erratum

I don't suppose anyone is going to reject the volume however you do need to know.

Due to a printing error the ISBN shown on Page 2 and the back cover is incorrect. The correct number for this publication is: ISBN 978-0-9556081-7-9

Hopefully you will start to receive the books today ?

Mine arrived today and I must say thanks to Mike, Peter and Graham, it is just stunning. Every bit as good as the original with the added bonus of having it in pristine condition, something that my original definitely is not, sadly.
Signed by Graham too! Thumbs Up

I had only 100 copies published a couple of bookshops have enquired but I'd rather they sold within the community. I have sold over 50 copies now.

The signed ones have run out however Graham Isherwood is a speaker at this years NAMHO conference and he would I'm sure be wiling to sign copies there
