Have used similar boxes for over a year. They are tough, one can view the contents without opening and the lids click into place firmly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas 1915 in France, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Taken from the diary of Capt. Robert Hamilton whilst serving in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment the greater part of the book describes the day to day life in the trenches and the extraordinary cease fire of that Christmas. The work has been made of interest to those who had relations fighting in France by the research and commentary of the authors.

Suitable for the four and a half by six inch size prints for loose binding and for protection from fingering. Regrettably no space for caption inserts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A window into the 15C., 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As one who enjoyed history at school but with very patchy knowledge of British history this book filled in a gap. Easy and a pleasure to read yet requiring some concentration as the Christian names of participants were frequently shared between generations it provides the wish to look deeper into that period. Was Henry Vl a depressive ? His behaviour might be explained by such.


Panasonic KX-TG6711EB DECT Phone
Panasonic KX-TG6711EB DECT Phone

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect replacement for an older Panasonic model, 12 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good desk-top model. It is convenient, the sound is clear and as one who welcomes helpful operating instructions these were excellent.

This was purchased for archival purposes but I fear that the plastic material with which it is made will last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Precisely as required, 12 Mar 2013

It was important that the edge by which the refill was held did not impinge on the area of A4 and that the opening for contents was on the inner edge preventing items falling out.


Personal Reminiscences of the First Duke of Wellington, With Sketches of Some of His Guests and Contemporaries. Edited by Mary E. Gleig
Personal Reminiscences of the First Duke of Wellington, With Sketches of Some of His Guests and Contemporaries. Edited by Mary E. Gleig
by Gleig
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.17

4.0 out of 5 stars Insite into life after the Nalopeonic War, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The original is well known to the admirers of Gleig and his ability to record social life at this time. Many of the letters the book contains are of minimal value but the first-hand recount of the arrival of the Swing Riot to an East Kent village make this of paricular interest. It must be made clear the the "Personal" reminiscences are those of Gleig and not of the Duke.
Sadly this reprint is not withouit its failings - the page is peppered with the letter "a" and a grave accent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overweight and tedious, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to expand my ability to improve digital photography and the use of RAW in the taking of architecture this book was quickly put to one side. First it weights 1.19KG; it is overly chatty without adding clarity. Its sole positive value is the paper on which it is printed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A social history, 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bryson reviews the history behind each room of a home. The research is impressive as demonstrated by 33 pages of bibliography. His style is easy and the lay out allows one to take the subject in digestible portions. It may be a short history but it is about as large as a paperback can be and not for taking on the flight if there is doubt about excess luggage.
