Anyone buying this?

Antique Woodworking Tools. by David R Russell. pub: John Adamson Cambridge ISBN: 978-1-898565-05-5
This book weighs 4kg so instead of being a coffee table book, you could add legs and it would become a coffe table.
At £90, I doubt I will be buying a copy.

I see Amazon UK have it for £110 new - or £221.50 for a secondhand one! :D (I guess somebody bought a new one, used it and then put it up for sale for double the new price - presumably the cost of adding their "attractive" used "patina", for those who don't have time to read it themselves perhaps - but no, it is listed as "like new"! :D).

Antique Woodworking Tools: Their Craftsmanship from the Earliest Times to the Twentieth Century - David Russell (Author), James Austin (Illustrator)

By contrast, this book came up on the same page: Woodworking Tools (Shire Album) [Paperback] - Philip Walker (Author)
Costs only £3.69 including shipping. However, as a paperback, you might find it difficult to make a coffee table out of it :D
