The old hands among you might even notice a few prizes left over from the last time - you will see them (and the others below) again and again until they go! Some of them verge on the educational, but be not afear'd, knowledge is power!
- £10.00 worth of goods of your choice from Diplomatist Books (the postage will be extra on this). No jokes about first prize being £10.00's worth and second prize being £15.00's worth please! (I'm looking at you Mr Amos!)
- Hunter Davies, Behind the Scenes at the Museum of Baked Beans: My Search for Britain's Maddest Museums (paperback book)
- Sci-Fi Art: A Pocket History (a small book and lots of fun fridge magnets)
- Susanna Clarke, The Ladies of Grace Adieu (pb book). Faeries stories from the author of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell. I'm a fan of Clarke and recommend this (don't you want to know how the Duke of Wellington reacts when the faeries steal Copenhagen?)
- Life on a Medieval Street by the Norwich Survey (actually an excavation report) and P Clark & P Slack, English Towns in Transition, 1500-1700
- Thomas Dugdale, England and Wales Delineated: Historical, Entertaining and Commercial. Basically a gazetteer with lots of fun info. Vol I (A-F) only. A little tatty, but it's been knocking around since the 1840s...
- K Rushby, Hunting Pirate Heaven (hb book). According to Amazon, "Rushby's objective is to locate the descendants of the 16th century pirates who had carved kingdoms for themselves in the remote jungles of north-east Madagascar. Hitching rides on a motley assortment of freighters, dhows, yachts and fishing smacks, he sails up the African coast, then east towards his goal. It is a story full of incident: voyages to islands where forgotten Portugese forts lie covered in jungle, places where some have tried to shoot their way to paradise, and where the ever-present ocean can destroy lives and dreams as quickly as men and women create them."
- Mike Spick, Great Aircraft of WWII: Avro Lancaster; FE Dymond, A Very Special Lancaster: A History of Lancaster Mk1 R5868; Flying Legends Air Show 2004, Duxford.
