Outbid before I got there to put in my bid, bugger.

Awaiting the last minute "pounce".

I could have stopped at £4.50 !

My last minute bid was £103; just fractions of a second too late. Love to see it.

We really should communicate on bids, I was happy to win this, happy to let anyone else here win it - possibly cheaper.

Pretty sure I have a copy of that knocking about in my collection.

If I can find it i'll scan some of the maps and see what the interest is like.
