are particularly rare - there must be thousands of copies of all of them tucked away on bookshelves and in second-hand book shops all over the country.

Amozon used prices

1)The Windsor Years by Lord Kinross £60

Forum member thankx again there is quite some flutuations in price here...

No you have not bought any bargains. The Windsor Years is £3.49 on here The Noldi's prices are a bit of a joke and only for those who cannot be trusted with money. Books on royalty, no matter what age, are ultra naff for collectors which is reflected in their cheap prices. You were overcharged and you should have beaten the seller down.

Can my book The Little Princesses by Marion Crawford May 1952 Edition be worth much?

Judging by Uboats lot I might have to take it off my house insurance list;-)

My other Royal Treasure is a Two and Sixpenny approved Souvenir Programme of The Coronation which is 40 pages of detailed information about the days proceedings etc.

Bargains and car boots?

They're just a junk exchange really, I throw better stuff away than I've seen for sale at them.

Why don't you have a stall at a car boot and make some money even if you donate the proceeds to charity, better than just throwing stuff away.
