Article about: Paul, Are those book plates, or personally signed books? If book plates are allowed, here is one of mine

    Picked up today in the basement of a Charing Cross Rd bookshop.....interesting 'period' book by the notorious Norwegian Fascist leader, Vidkun Quisling. But what made it worth the £4 asking price for me was the inscription......

    I believe ( I'll be happy to be put right ) that this may be the signature of SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer Paul Anton Helle, Kommandeur of the Amersfoort Concentration Camp. The inscription is basically 'Souvenir of Yuletide 1942 in the Netherlands 20 December 1942' * so I guess the book was handed out to his subordinates.

    It seems that 19 out of 20 'SS' relics shown on the Forum are fakes - this is one that isn't !

    ( * : I wonder what the German is for 'Gee, thanks - just what I've always wanted'...... )
    Nice one ! do they have any 1st Edition Harry Potter books down there as well .......

    That's interesting. Michael " Micky " Burn married Mary Booker after the war and wrote the book " Mary and Richard " about their love affair
    Micky was a character in more ways that one indeed, I have many of his signed books

    Cheers
