John Illingworth's Ringing Books - For Sale

Notes re John Illingworth’s book lists.

I am selling these on behalf of his widow Linda – now Linda Monrowe

Prices listed are mostly based on the price he paid and were his latest valuation from some years ago, but prices don’t seem to have changed much.

Reasonable offers will all be considered. Postage will be extra or collect from Rugby.

Why not make an offer for the lot and start your own ringing library – will include the bookcase!!

If there’s a title you need that is not on the list do ask – I might have a copy and be willing to sell.
