I finally got my hands on another near perfect copy via ebay, an absolute steal at just £2.

My original, battered copy has I believe crossed the Styx. It must have been the most thumbed book I have ever possessed; annotated to hell with the pages all falling out... goodbye old friend!

Considering that the book was researched in the pre-internet days, I agree with Brian.
One of, if not THE most important historical records of the game in this country.
I'll soon be at the stages of handling my copy with white gloves in a temperature-controlled room but it's still an astonishing piece of work even today.
Twenty-odd years in the making, I'm hopeful I will soon have an updated and enhanced volume to follow John Byrne's original. If it's half as well-acclaimed as the original then I'll rest happy.
