Hi Claas,

it would be the least expensive way to read Latham.
I think that edition is from the 'English Experience' series --- an edition I don't have, so you might have to bid an extra pound or two:yawinkle:.

Best wishes,

Tony.

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your interest.
Obviously as I am now selling this small collection I want to attain a realistic and fair price. However I am not a dealer so I am not thinking about profit margins and overheads, I am just looking to realise some of the money i've spent buying books over many years.
I've done my research so I have a good understanding of value and prices the trade are marketing these books at.
Because of the volatile way the book trade works, coupled with the key merits of some volumes in the collection I thought inviting offers was by far the fairest way to sell on the forum.

For anyone unsure of the value of a particular book may I suggest you research the trade, good sources of information are Abe books, Amazon and Falconry books UK.
Remember I am not a dealer so I am not looking for top dealer prices, though all my books are in top condition.
I won't be declining fair and realistic offers! (by PM please)

Take care,
David.
