For those of us (like myself) whose budgets may be (ahem) temporarily out of funds, I have placed one of our  splendid Author’s Proofs in secure surroundings in the City of Bristol Archives at B Bond Warehouse, Smeaton Rd, Bristol BS1 6XN.

It can be viewed there, free and  by anyone interested,(whether a member of this, any other club, or none) free; thus in line with this Trust’s educational/research brief.

Yours in Bristol

Chair, Bristol Owners Heritage Trust
