Hi folks. Everyone knows that local history books get rare once they sell out of their initial runs. Very often, titles appear fleetingly, and disappear into the ether without ever really being seen again.
I’ve spent years tracking down some local history books – It took three years and five times the cover price to buy Gerald Reece’s ‘A Walk Into History’, for instance (although it was well worth the cost, I can tell you). Without the auspices of reader David Evans, we’d never have had access to several works, including Margaret Brice’s brilliant history of Walsall Wood.
With this in mind, I’m after a copy of the work below – ‘The King of Norton Canes’ by Jack Harrison, and his previous book, ‘Above the Black Diamonds’. I’m not even sure they’re books, they may just be pamphlets.
I know nothing of the author, although the name seems very familiar – possibly from local newspapers or other media. If you have a copy of this book, and would be prepared to loan or scan it, please do drop me a line. I’m after any information available really, please.
Cheers. Comment here, please, or BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
