Welcome to Catalogue #219. You couldn’t really call it the depths of winter yet but it’s still a bit chilly here in Perth of a morning. We’ve resolved to not use the heater much this winter as our contribution to the climate change debate. A good house coat and a blanket on the lounge at night do the job.

So…to books. Quite a few rare titles in this list especially in the Great War section. There are many that I haven’t listed before and many that I haven’t listed for years—the rarity and condition dictates their value. These valuable books are never seen these days and when they do appear they command high prices. Supply and demand sets in of course. So quickly scan the list and get straight onto me (0417964530). As usual this catalogue is dedicated to ex and serving soldiers who may not be travelling very well. Now that we’re generally out of the wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, there are many soldiers, both men and women, back here and struggling. Keep and eye out for your mates & prepare to give them a leg up. All it takes is the odd phone call. So be kind to each other and
Via con Dios   Mick and Jo
