I've never seen this book Barttore, and I can't find any reference to it either. Is it a rare, older title, or a book due for publication soon? Or something else......?

Or are you hoping someone might write it?!    ;)

Hello John, I have only seen it here:

A reprint would be great, maybe someone here wrote it or has contact with someone involved.

Thanks Barttore. So 22 pages, spiral bound, probably low volume. Maybe if you contact Shelsley Walsh they might know who wrote it, or if anyone has any stock. But presumably, if that copy you linked went for £65, there aren't lots of spare copies lying around. Good luck.

New one to me, as well! Shelsley is the obvious place to start looking, but the VSCC Library or Beaulieu might be worth a try. Possibly even Gaydon?
