What a welcome suggestion from Alan. I think a reprint of Cornwall is particularly to be desired.

Elsewhere there was an indication that there might be some problem with works published in parts. Fred Sharpe never had any such problem when "Berkshire" was reprinted in 1970, along with the list of amendments and some extra photographs.

I feel that Alan deserves particular praise and support for suggesting piloting the early County Bell Books. Whilst they may be "out of date" as to some present tower contents, they recall a period in the history of the tower which is of interest in its own right. Old "method" book reprints are to me at any rate no substitute for the "feel" of the real thing. 

Yes indeed, put me down for "Cornwall".

  Hello Everyone,

  Your assistance is needed with the next project.

  As the proposed facsimile of Troyte has received a lukewarm reception, I am shelving it at this time and plan to do Stedman, 1903, by Rev. Davies.   As this was a Jasper Snowdon Change-Ringing Series item, would there be any chance of a copyright problem or not?   Input would be most appreciated.

  Secondly, although not a 'general' ringing book, I'm preparing a facsimile of 'The Church Bells of  Cornwall' using the recently advertised CD, with their permission.

  If anyone is interested, please let me know. 

  Best wishes

  Alan Ellis
