Very few new copies of the second edition (colour photos) of the original 2007 book now remain unsold — but you can secure one for £10.00 (one quarter of the current Amazon price for a second-hand copy). And, with your order, you will receive a copy of Volume 2 absolutely free. Copies of Volume 2 by itself will set you back a mere £2.00. Order direct from the author by email or telephone (01273 958488).
