A minor correction here - the alternative book is 'ARTIFACTS from
Wrecks' not Assemblages, which is part of the sub-title.
Musing on the value of books, I was shocked to see that a book on armour
that I bought several years ago for around $160 Australian is now
selling for over 1600 pounds according to a recent Ken Trotman catalog -
and its not even in English.
