Gordon Cheers Book

Hi all,

Over the last couple of months a number of people have reported difficulty
finding a copy of Gordon Cheers book - _A Guide to Carnivorous Plants of
the World_. I just ran across a source for it today (and cheap at that).
I got a sales listing from the Edward R. Hamilton company (a discontinued
and remaindered bookseller) and they are advertising the Cheers book for
a nifty $24.95 (sob - I paid $45 about 6 months ago). For those of you
who are on the mailing list for ERH and have or will get the sales list,
it is on page 6, column 1 about half way down; for those not on their
list the company address is:

Edward R. Hamilton
Falls Village CT 06031-5000

The item number is 855189, price $24.95, shipping $3 per order. In the
past I have ordered from them simply by sending them a letter giving
them the item number, title and author and price and enclosing a check
for the appropriate amount so I would suppose this would still work.

If you are not on their mailing list, all you have to do is write and
ask to be added. They have an interesting, constantly changing list
of books in a variety of areas at a 20 to 60 per cent discount to the
published price; their service is prompt (usually 10 - 14 days) and
accurate (I've never had an error in an order) and they are very
accommodating if you need to return a book for any reason. Over the
last ten years I have bought 80 - 100 books from them (mostly indoor
gardening, cooking, art and science) without any problems.

This has gotten to be much longer than I had intended so I guess I'd
better cut it off now.
