I have three books to part with, each of which was produced as a special limited edition (of 500), by the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral:
1) Auld-Lang-Syne - Recollections and Rural Records of Old Claughton, Birkenhead and Bidston with Other Reminiscences
2) A Perambulation of the Hundred of the Wirral in the County of Chester
3) Twixt Mersey and Dee

All are in excellent condition.
If interested, please let me know, or ask if you'd like me to post the full description of each.
I have recently seen identical titles for Sale at £50, £12 and £40 respectively. So hopefully someone might be interested in the set of three for offers over £60?
Thanks

Hi Mike 1965.
So sorry for the long delay....... due to hospital and medical issues. Now back to normal.
I do appreciate that you may not now be interested, but if you are, then I'd take £35 plus £4 postage.
Feel free to phone me on 01824-780748.
