Margate and Westgate with Birchington the Summer Season 1903-4

After a long day battling with printers and very large files I have finally managed to get this book into print.

It is one of the earliest Margate guides to have advertisements illustrated with photographs of the businesses, so is invaluable to the local historian.

In the bookselling world one may sometimes describe a book as foxed, meaning that the paper has brown spots on it cause by an imbalance of the PH in the paper when it was manufactured.
Keeping with animal related book descriptions the original of this one looks like it has been dogged beared and possibly trodden on by an elephant, as you can see from the picture.

Anyway it is now available in the shop price £9.99 and when I can face technology particularly the demands of printing more copies I will make it available online too.

High definition laser printing sometimes seems to operate in some strange area where science, alchemy and magic all meet.

That makes 131 local books in print and I have about another 5 in the pipeline.
