Caliver Books
Many thanks to those of you who have responded generously to the sale of Duncan’s books. It is indeed a good cause.

For those of you seeing this for the 1st time, Duncan left his considerable collection to Daniel Faulconbridge at Wargames Illustrated. Dan has generously offered the cream of them for sale in aid of the Gurkha Welfare Trust, and for our part the Caliver Books team have volunteered to do the footslog of listing. Over the next several weeks all the 2nd hand books listed and sent out on the Caliver Mailing list, and then later posted of Facebook, will have been Duncan’s. It's a chance for those of you who knew of him to own a piece of wargames history, and do your bit for the charity.

If you want to get in early, email us at Caliver and ask to go on the list.. Or sign up for the Caliver Books or Miniature Figurines or Rogue Miniatures Facebook pages
