bargain book purchase

Post by timbobarnacle »

just got this book at the Works/remainder shop in Southport, an A2 size collection of reprinted battle maps from 1547 - battle of Pinkie Clough, right to the Boer War 1899 - 1902. original price £50.00, paid £7.00.

ISBN numbers - Cloth coat edition ISBN -10 :1 84724 206 5 or ISBN -13: 978 184724 208 8
Printed case ISBN - 10: 1 84724 207 3 or ISBN 13 : 978 184724 207 5

Some of the earlier maps especially have some great artistic details, and there are sea battles, English Civil War, War of the Spanish Succession, Waterloo, American war of independence, American Civil War etc.

Finely detailed maps, although some of the later ones have some scale problems even at A1 size. some interesting costume and historical detail, for anyone interested in maps or battles, a fine book, going to need a large bookcase though. tempted to go back and see if there are any left, if anyone expresses an interest here- could deliver to TORM or ILHF
fast removing B&Q boxes from re-enactment, and hoping to do the same for sash cord guy ropes
