Pristine hardback edition, with JYS' Tyrrell on the flyleaf cover; purchased new and stored with care.
 
I'm a Christian missionary in Asia, and have left the book at a local Church office in the UK, from where it can be collected or posted to you. 
 
All the sale price will go to a Christian ministry in Asia (not mine) caring for destitute widows and street children.
 
Best donation offer secures.
 
PayPal to me, or cash to the Church, whichever is convenient.

Trunnion, Ebay may be your best bet.  There is an established market there for Autocourse, and an early 1970s edition should sell for a reasonable price.   The link below shows some recent sales:

If, back at the church office in the UK, there is someone who can list it for you, including a photo and the condition details that any potential buyer would expect, you should have more luck.  Whereabouts is your UK church?

Thank you John, kind of you to advise. The church is oop North, and I don't wish to trouble the volunteer Staff with the hassle of listing it on eBay, or posting it. They've already been kind enough to store it safely for me. And, come to think of it, I doubt such a large book would be safe in the post. It's in perfect condition, so it'd be tragic if it got dinged in transit. It's within cycling distance of Oulton Park so I'm hopeful a local TNF Honourable Petrol-head can collect it.

Trunnion. Now that you seem willing to post the annual, why don't you list it on Ebay where someone might buy it? As you may have gathered, not many people visit this forum, let alone buy anything.

Thank you John, but no change in our position on eBay, see my post 6 above. It's in easy range of lot's of motor-racing hotspots, such as "Chumley", Oulton Park, and such like :) This thread will succeed in its purpose, of that I'm certain.

I'm sure it will, Trunnion, I'm sure it will, whether the book sells or not..........

Still available to a kind-hearted person, and still rising in value as Sir JYS enters his final laps.

 

A sound investment in the most important way possible. :)

Hello Trunnion, good to see you again......

 

I'm sure you know what you're doing but......how about listing the Autocourse on eBay, for collection only, from Cheshire or wherever? I can't work out, from the contradictory posts above, whether you are happy to have the book posted or not. Either way, you have a photo, listing would be easy, and you will be displaying the book to hundreds of potential buyers, rather than the three of us here....

 

Copies on eBay are still selling for over £100.

 

See you again next year?

Thank you for your kind suggestion John, but we don't touch eBay.

 

Initially, I was thinking of posting the tome, but reconsidered when I realised I'd be putting friends to more trouble, as well as jeopardizing its pristine corners.

 

We still have great confidence in the deep benevolence of the members of these noble fora.

 

:)

Grab it now ready for JYS to sign it for you at Goodwood, where he celebrates his 80th birthday and first WDC.

 

It has been waiting here just for you :)
