Everything is sold except for

2. James Arnold, The Joyous Wheel, Hamish Hamilton, 1940. A glorious, strange, wonderful book about the joys of local and regional rides in Britain before WWII. According to Wikipedia, Arnold was a commercial artist; his block print illustrations for The Joyous Wheel are certainly lovely enough to support that. There don't appear to be many copies of this book out there, but how many could have been printed in the dark days of Britain in 1940, anyway? $75.

5. Ronald English, Cycling for You, Lutterworth Press, London, 1966, c.1964. Another general cycling manual, some line drawings, some action photos including some pix of riders competing in a CTC touring competition. Hardcover, nice dustjacket, $20.
