It was reprinted in the late nineties and even those are getting scarce.

This copy was donated to our club by the widow of a former member - to raise funds for the club.

Thanks for letting us know Denis. I have a copy - it's a good book.

I guarantee it will go for a good price. I'm sure someone will be happy to bid it up to ensure the club does well out of it. :wink:
