When you think about it Mel, we must all spend a small fortune on books and memorabelia to satisfy our ancestry obsession/passion. :wink:

We do Stephanie. This one will be the most expensive I have ever bought which is why I am travelling to get it. It's an early birthday present from Lyndon.

Mind you, I very rarely order certificates these days. I probably spend less on books than I have on certifictaes over the years.

Have just checked Abe Books online and found they currently list four available copies of Tattersall's book - with prices from £35 to £70 plus postage. Condition of none of them looks to be as good as the one Mel has heard about - but might be good enough if content and economy are more important than a pristine volume.

I have found Abe Books to be a great source of obscure books at good prices.

I use Abebooks and Alibris a lot. They are both great resources for hard to come by books. For me, the content of the book is more important - as long as it can be read and isn't going to fall apart in the process.

Thanks for the info Ruth
