    A recent acquisition - Details all components for the many British Cars, Motorcycles and Trucks that Jospeh Lucas supplied - a gem for wanting part numbers for bulbs relays light fittings brake components et al.

    #84 - Shelsey Walsh, Bira etc. This could almost have been my Dad's bookshelf! Unlike the rest of his extensive collection of books, these resided on a small shelf alongside his favourite chair, so I was a regular browser though I must confess to never having read them.

    Great collection though - and a surprising number could also be found on my shelves.

    These are on the shelf above my office window. Safe from UV light - and reflected sunlight. Taken exactly four years ago, so one copy of ERA has gone.

    ERC thanks for sharing there are lots I have not got in your pics so I'm back on the hunt. the fun of the chase is as good as the reading. its sad that a lot of the older books I am finding come with the offer of others from deceased estates I guess we are all getting older.

    Many of mine are for sale hotrod, as I know darn well the family won't be bothered listing them, even though some are autographed, some quite rare. I estimated the value of just those pictured to be worth a bob or two. Several other shelves full.

    One of the more recent additions, (not pictured) 'Poetry in Motion - Tony Brooks' seems to have dramatically increased in value already. On another shelf, Miles Wilkins book on fibreglass and a Brockbank book, also seem to be selling for far more than I would have estimated.
