Cramp et al. Handbook of the Birds of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Vols 1-5 (out of 7). RSPB/O.U.P., 1977-88.
I’ve recently bought a large collection, and need to make some space! The cheapest equivalent copies I can find online for these vols range from £15 – £30 each. These 5 can be yours for £60, of which I will donate £10 to Club. They are all in VG condition, just a little sunned to spines, and 2 of them have neatly-repaired 1cm closed tears to head of spine (N.B. Never pull a heavy book off the shelf like that!)
Brown, Urban & Newman. Birds of Africa, Vols. 1-3 (of 7). Academic Press, 1982-88.
VG+ condition, with sunning to spines of V.2 and 3. Cheapest I can find £27 – £42 each. I can do £75, again with £10 going to Club.  I can deliver to  N. Tyneside/ Ncle, or rendezvous with anyone further afield.

Contact Alan Macfarlane 07926369140 for any of the above.
