I sympathise with your desire to keep the collection together, though I think that most of us have quite specific pursuits. Personally I'm just looking for old images and archaeology reports and am more of an Amazon bargain basement shopper than a collector. If there was a rare image or book with images not captured elsewhere I might be interested. Perhaps if it was ok with Rob, you could give more details or even a photo of your collection. If all else fails let us know where and when you're putting the stuff to auction. Sorry that your circumstances mean you have to sell it.

On 14th Feb 2015 11:03am, francesb said: I was given a copy for my birthday last December. Subscription copy 255. Compiled by A.E. Feltham & produced by Calcott & Feltham, The City Press, Ironmonger Row, in 1927. It was priced at £90 ref 60880 from The Used Bookstore, Nuneaton. The last owner was Evan O.C. Howells, Haynestone, Kenilworth. I wondered if this was the only Coventry book C & F put together? I love all books on Coventry & do have quite an extensive collection, which I am just in the process of cataloguing & always on the lookout for more. Simone
Hello Simone. I have just finished reading "The Blitzed City - The Destruction of Coventry, 1940", Karen Farrington, published by Aurum 2015 which I paid only a few pounds for a new copy from Postscript. As I was a mere fifteen months old at the time of the November raid, and all my family survived it has always been an interest, as has the history and traditions of pre-war Coventry with all its character and architecture. So I thought you may like to hear of it.

Of course, you could always read the two free books in Local Authors. (Just thought I would put a plug in) Wink

I agree with Kaga, although there are great books out there. In some ways there is too much information in the many books but this place works on the principle of many hands making light work. I like the way something someone says or asks makes me think or rethink about that section of the city. And Kaga is a book all on his own, with memories and stories that nobody else can tell.
