Thanks for the email about the other Annette Eyre titles. I do have copies of those two books, but without dustjackets, and, of course, unsigned. And being the completist I am, you may very well find me ordering them from you some time soon, despite the fact that my book collection ranges over 3 rooms and is deplorably in need of additional shelving. In the meantime, many thanks for the book that is on its way to me, and I may well be ordering again in the near future. Kind regards ... Peter
Thank you, The book arrived safely and will be a welcome addition to our education and nature collections. Julia
