  SIGNED SHELL GUIDES Feb 1 2017     - 11/11/2013
One of our specialities is Shell Guides 1934-1984. We are always looking for Shell Guides that are signed by the authors and/or contributors. So far we have had in stock Shell Guides signed by Lady Juliet Smith (Northants) , Henry Thorold(usually dated and with an interesting dedication in Derbys , Notts and Lincs , Norman Scarfe(both Suffolk and Cambridgeshire),Thomas Sharp(Northumberland and Northumberland and Durham). Though we have had other items signed by John Betjeman and John Piper we have as yet not had any Shell Guides signed by them. Until now Feb 2017 . WE are about to acquire a signed copy of Oxon 1938 Batsford. The book is signed by John Piper and dedicated to Frank and Peggy . The Frank is Frank Milward who was a lifetime friend of John Piper from school days at Epsom through to old age . The Tate holds the correspondence between the two . Peggy was Frank's wife marrying him in 1951 . More about her later.  | Jim
