very interesting copy, already brought out my absentee bid... got a condition report and extra images. This is a wonderful copy overall. Trying to find more info now... but so far no success.

It looks lovely to me. Signed on all three title pages? Wow! Pity I can't afford it.

I'd like to know its story - that is, who it was signed for, and how it comes to be for sale.

Not listened to this yet, but I am sure people here may find this to be interesting and it is not limited to just the UK.

Melvyn Bragg discusses the life and achievements of Athelstan, the first king of England. With Sarah Foot, Richard Gameson and John Hines.
