Forgive another little foray away from the AZW. I cannot resist an "association" copy and this book on the Waterloo campaign is pretty scarce as it is. Given the owner I must say I was delighted to find it.

Nice map. He must have taken the contour lies from the early 1960's survey map. Huge amount of work.

The yellowish tinge is dodgy lighting, its actually crystal clear.

Les, middle image, what does the inscription say?

Neil Thorntons new book is a fascinating read. 'Led by Lions'. MPs and sons who fell in the first world war.
Well done Neil.

New addition to collecton. Not in bad condition, talking to a book binder in Canterbury, as some of the pages are loose.

£30.00 from ebay.

Hi All,
Managed to pick up a couple of Zulu War books at very good prices recently.

A History of the Royal Regiment of Wales for £5.50.
British Battles on Land & Sea Vol.4 for £6.00. A lot of good sections on the Anglo Zulu wars.
The Rorke's Drift Doctor for £20.00 including delivery.
Very happy
cheers

Finally got my copy of the Red Book, would post a pic but it says file is too big? Also managed to get an Official Narrative 1907 edition, complete with all the maps. From the library of Rainforth Armitage Walker/Anthony Frederick Walker (sorry but I've no idea who they are)?

Well done! The Red Book is nice, but the 1907 Narrative is nicer in my opinion. Rainforth Armitage Walker was something of an expert on Aubrey Beardsley the artist. Does your volume have a bookplate? Walker apparently had a number, but one was by Beardsley himself and is quite valuable in its own right.

Hi Steve,

Sorry I'm not quite sure what you mean by "bookplate" There is, some sort of sticker I suppose on the inside cover, is that what you mean? "Ex Libris Rainforth Armitage Walker" with a date of 1927 also another sticker with the details of Anthony Frederick (his son)?? The only thing that spoils it, is someone has stuck two newspaper cuttings on the inside. One a review of W.H. Clements Glamour & Tragedy of the Zulu War dated 12/9/36 and a small piece on "Zulu etiquette"

Yes, that sounds like a bookplate. Black and white picture with "Ex Libris" and Rainforth Armitage Walker underneath. But it depends which one it is.

Looks like a pilgrim, medieval town in the background, old man in a hooded cloak reading a book. Vertical staff in the ground to one side with a "double" cross. Sandwiched in between Ex Libris and his name. At the very top a dove? holding a branch in its beak.

As an aside the book by W.H.Clements ' The Glamour And Tragedy Of The Zulu War ' is well worth a read .

Hmm. Doesn't sound like a Beardsley unfortunately - still a very nice book though.

Hi Les
I've sold one to a chap out here for the same price back in May ,  who's actually a member on the Forum . It's certainly a must have , many articles that aren't in the mainstream publications , regarding promotions etc etc and other little known articles .

Gentlemen some advice.
The Borquin Johnson collection of the Telegraph was published in 1965, was it ever re published.

That was a nice find Frank. I used to get to car boots at an ungodly hour of a Sunday morning, but now I favour the mid day starts! We should start a thread on the best car boot finds. How did the Bourquin turn out?

Steve
I haunt old shops, charity shops and boot sales. My best buy was an old cardboard box with The diary of HF Flynn, first edition: Olden times in Zululand Bryant and Febana by Elizabeth Watt. I paid the asking price on condition she threw in the box to carry them. Equivalent of 30 GBP.
On examination of the rest of the box, a few old and tatty paperbacks, there was an absolute gem. Volume 6 of The rise of South Africa by Cory ( I have the other 5 volumes ). That completed the set.
Hell but she could bargain that lady. Very Happy

Managed to get Capt Rainforth's copy of The Historical Records of the 24th. Spine a bit loose but not bad. Again from the Rainforth Walker collection. Interesting anecdote in the front but I think the facts got a bit mixed up in the telling.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Nice copy to have Bill. I now know of seven copies with regimental connections - Welby, Weallens, Vor Trower, Lee, Penn Symons, Glennie and Rainforth. Keep them coming.

Managed to acquire this Illustrated London News July to December 1879, some very nice prints inside. Some of the Prince Imperial which I have not seen in any AZW books before.
