Looks like I was beaten to them, mate - as you say, hope it was someone here.

Oh, that's a pity Neil, I was hoping it was either you or someone on here...... nobody's admitted it yet though! Quite a coincidence though, as they appear to have been bought very soon after my post on here.

Just in case anyone is looking for this book, Astley book farm seem to have 3 copies . They're in a locked cabinet so can't comment on price(s) or condition.

Lol Thumbs up Lol Come on, give us a clue. It reminds me of a Two Ronnies sketch in a library where all the books are sorted by colour or size and not by title or author. So is it a medium sized brown book?

Beg pardon, the miniature nature of the image seems to be unchanging however I try to upload. The white sign says 'Dr Troughton's Sketches of Old Coventry. Mary Dormer Harris/Dr. Nathaniel Troughton c. 1906 £59.00'

Thanks Thumbs up The price of this book varies. I paid £19 for a copy with a fairly stained binder. I see them for £30 now and then. A very good book but it depends if you want a collectable copy or not. I just wanted the pictures in it. General advice, if you see something you like, it's worth doing the rounds of outlets online to see if there's another copy. Sod's law says that if you buy a copy of any book, you'll see one a fraction of the price a week later. Roll eyes Beware some of the images as they are stripped from a full book and sold separately. Sometimes it's much cheaper to buy the full copy of the book. Beware books with the plates removed! Look for a very expensive copy as it will often list the number of plates the book should have. Then go back to the cheap copy and work out the value. Many very old books are now available for free online. Beware of reprints of old books. They often don't have the images and they are subject to copyright. They may even be more expensive than an original copy.

Just fished my copy out, it says £10 but I have had it a few years so add a bit of inflation on to that!
