Nice book, shame about the price

Gulp, way out of my price league. Looks a riveting read, with beautiful
illustrations.
If any of you SEM types are listening - what about SEM serialising some of these
classic books? It's the only way I'm
ever going to be able to read them, and I'm sure many readers would enjoy it.

I was wincing when it was 147 quid, I'm a trifle taken aback now the final bids in..

I was not surprised as I have a 1902 second edition (ex College of Aeronautics J W Chick) and its a stunning book. Its one of the Finsbury technical series edited by Sylvanus P Thompson. Scans have already gone to four continents to aid restorations of some very rare and beautiful engines. I was lucky to pick it up a few years back from an ad on Chris Heapys page of all places! The owner was selling it, and leaving our hobby, because he said he'd fallen out with SEM over publishing extracts. I know not the truth of that but it sounds odd. ttfn Roland

Not being a sophisticate like yourself, Roland I was was surprised, nay gobsmacked as my copy, bought on eBay a copy of years back, came to less than the probable postage on that one, due to being described as an "old book", giving lie to the saying: a pictures worth a 1000 words. I just love taciturn sellers! Unfortunately they are becoming rarer as taciturnity gives way to hyperbole.
