Relatively speaking, they haven't quite gone yet. There are still 
bargains to be had in USA where dealers are not aware of what they 
have got. My recent purchase of Robinson's Among the Bells in superb 
condition in original binding came froom Missouri for £25 air mail. 
This is why I was able to sell my recased copy on e.bay. 'Suffolk' 
came the same way from New York for £100. But a copy of 'Suffolk' in 
Sussex went for £80 before I spotted it.
