Jammy S*D! :-D Amazon do have a link to various private sellers, who can obtain out of print and old books. Sometimes very cheap. I've got several books through the service.

There's a later edition here.. bit too hot for me :shocked:

Yes always worth collecting if they are cheap enough but the postage is a killer. Dealers often price them reasonably because of the weight they can be difficult to shift.


I like to collect different editions of the same book as there are always significant changes, I only have 3 editions your book, but so far have 19 consecutive editions of Jane's Weapon Systems.

Not bad for a series started by a Vicar! :-D


Vicar? Are you talking about the founder Fred T.Jane born in 1865? Never seen any reference to that, the company site describe him as a naval author, journalist & novelist & linked to the formation of MI5.


He went to the same school as me, although I was there quite a few years later:D
