    Charity shops, boot sales, flea markets are a rich source of historical literature. They might not be the most current and fashionable books or places to shop but all books are worthwhile tools to the amateur historian and collector.

    You can't beat the holding of a good book and reading it and looking at the pictures, to actually have an item in your hands and of course many are beautiful items in their own right.


    Whatever its just an opinion.
