this is a good book, hadn't realised it was out of print and expensive but no doubt available through the library.

The Ashmolean did a digital reprint a few years ago which is still readily available for £15.

Just ordered a copy, thanks Medicus for the tip- the original is currently £220 second hand on Amazon, so the Ashmolean offer is well worth knowing about.

Curses, should have offered to sell you one of my copies for a mere £200. :wink:
