The incomparable Finlay book

This is the paperback version of Michael Finlay's hard back book, which was published in 1990 and it is still an excellent authority on old writing items.

About 2010 as the prices of the hardback version of this book soared on line to absurd heights, I was in discussion with the author which lead to the purchased of the copyright to publish a slightly smaller paperback version on the understanding that it would be identical and unchanged in every aspect except the slight scale reduction. This sole aim was to make this book available for enthusiasts to share in the quality of precise writing and impressive research. I believe that it has been a worthwhile venture, even though it has proved financially disadvantageous. We are now selling these books at printing cost price.
