We have tried to be fair with calculating the costs including postage.  In the UK, for example, the price including postage is not much  more than the cover price of the two books (indeed, if both books are posted the additional cost is only just over a £1.


Costs ie book purchase plus postage and packing.

If you live outside of Europe you  must, of course, tell me how you want the books posted.


The ‘Letters’ soft back (£9.95) may seem over-priced compared to the ‘Woolley’ hardback (£14.95) but, the printing costs of the two books were remarkably similar.  The hardback was not much more expensive because 500 copies were printed compared to just 200 copies of the soft back.  With the original Memories book – which was aimed at a wider audience –  1000 copies were printed.  About 100 remain unsold.

Obviously, we would appreciate comments on the book(s).
