Hi. I have been collecting motoring and motor racing books, magazines and programmes since the 1960s and my office shelves and loft space are groaning. All copies of Motoring News and 99% of Autosport went in an earlier raid and now, RELUCTANTLY, I have to dispose of MOTOR SPORT which I have collected since 1966. I am also "advised" to clear the books that are on the floor(shelves full) and magazines from the MG Owners and the Midget and Sprite Clubs plus several years worth of MG Enthusiast, some of which are in original binders. I'd prefer they went in as few lots as possible and am prepared to be sensible over valuations. If you know anyone who may be interested in this stuff I'd be pleased to hear from them. Alternatively if you know a better way to dispose of them I'd like to know.
Thanks for reading. Regards, eeyore48
PS I also have a collection of Gold Cup programmes dating back to 1968 (The year the works Ferraris came) that could be prised out of my hands.

I tried to PM you but my message failed due to you having disabled personal messaging ? If you don't mind, would you PM me with a list of the books you have please.

Thanks
