It is not exactly by popular demand but this series has a cult following who wish to see more obscure titles assembled as I sort forty cases of books belonging to my late father. The first three in the series are HERE but this set is, arguably, the best yet in its diversity.

The useful phrases in Polish might have come in handy in 1975 but now seem all rather dated. I wonder if some of the phases are ever used these days: what is the rate per word in an ordinary telegram? I resist the urge to read Chinese poetry, even in English, but it must have amused Dad who was also clearly gripped by the utterly obscure historical research pamphlet. As for the book on rearing chickens, it is well thumbed as that is exactly what we did at Butterwell Farm and now what I plan for the Welsh hovel.
