David,

In case I need to remind you, I should already be on your list and thanks for doing this. Meanwhile, here are two photos of the great man taken in 1993. At one time Geoff might have included one of these in the book, but I think he found better options.

The good news - you are not too late and for others plenty of time yet.

The bad news - this will take a while to work through.

Lovely photos - and all the more meaningful following the talk at the AGM.

Another delay it seems.  Monday 4th August p.m. just received email from Amazon to say another delay and no delivery forecast as yet.  Anyone else heard similar news or with an idea of availability?  Geoff?  The publishers sent an email a week or so ago but this did not, I think, mention delivery, just the book being published with a price in US $.

Well the book was presented to the Club by Giovanni De Virgilio at the AGM and is now in the care of our Librarian. Giovanni said it was the first copy to reach Italy so may have been areproduction copy but it was very well produced so copies must be out there awaiting distribution. Anyway all things are worth waiting for!

Frustration here too. The books were supposed to be shipped from the printer in China June 16, to the US and England for distribution.

They left June 26, and the US ones cleared customs and were delivered to the distributor just last week. I think the ones for England are there, in processing. If you are getting from the distributor, that is the most speedy. If Chaters or Amazon, they have to shipped from the distributor to them…..

Giovanni's copy was an advance copy, air shipped to the family in Italy. It is the same as the shipped books.

I would get in touch with the distributor and ask when he plans to ship. He is the source.

If you can't wait to order through the club, Chaters is your best bet. The books are sent to them via the English distributor (Orca), who has begun to ship.

I have a longstanding order for this book with Amazon and whilst the delivery date has slipped back from late July.....the price has also reduced for some reason!
And on Monday this week, there were used copies 'in stock in the UK' listed  with more than one bookshop through Amazon at < £50. How?
Today I have heard from Amazon that my copy will arrive on Friday Aug 20th just in time for my birthday (it is a present from the current Mrs G). I cant wait having seen an early proof nearly 2 years ago.

Amazon is really flaky when books are first announced - they list them "for sale" as soon as you file an ISBN number, and then they "push back the date", while you are busy trying to publish the book. They are not reliable until the book is truly printed, in stock, and in the pipeline. Sorry, but that's what they do.

The book is now shipping by the UK distributors. Hortons has them (seen at Pebble) and Chaters should by now.

I hope the book shops appreciate me giving them a sporting chance.  Has been a blurr with the kids off but am getting a bit of time to think about stuff like this again.

I put my name down on Ade's informal "list" and would like a copy - but probably not two! So can we avoid duplication?

Got my birthday present yesterday via Amazon and at an excellent price.
Its just wonderful with so many unpublished photos and so much technical information, particylarly on Aurelias. And to know it is approved by the man himself and his family makes it even better. I suspect its one of those (rare ) books with very few errors.
Well done Geoff!
