  1. Hi there - I was recently clearing out my mother's house and am still recovering from getting rid of all her books(!). She spent her childhood in France and (briefly) in Africa - most of her French books, sadly have crumbled into whatever it is old French books turn into. I have a rather distressed book of WW1 French cartoons which I thought you might like - no hassle - if you don't care for it, it may as well go into your recycling as mine.

    If you are interested, delete this comment and email me at MSFoy AT and I can arrange to send it to you. This isn't a scam, by the way - I thought you might find it interesting!

    Regards - Tony
