Below is a sneak preview of the quality of the on offer. I had a good look at Kidlington show at a pre-print run copy. The set comes in a nice case.
RRP is £250 but considering the quality of the publication well worth the money if you can afford it. At the moment BBR are offering special hard to beat pre-print offer discount buy so hurry.
It is set to complement and bring up to date the earlier publications By Sheelah Ruggles-Brise (County Life 1949), Rodger Dumbrells (1973) and Willy Van den Bossche (2003) all accepted as standard references.
