The Summer Wine book.

I mentioned, a few days ago, about my wife finding a Summer book while searching for some other Summer Wine memorabilia {see 'Did you know?'}.
She showed me the book and I can't recall having bought it or seen it before. The only place I could have bought it from was from Nigel Hinchliffe's shop. I used to go in there quite often. Here are some pictures of the book with details of the publishers, the price and the year of production, 1983. It is full of cartoons similar to Clayes but not coloured and not as well drawn as his. Has anyone else got a copy of this book? It is about a half-inch thick and 9 inches by six.

Not seen it Peri but I have just checked on Amazon and you can buy it for £3.36 plus £2.80 p&p [there are various prices with another 6 books available] all are second hand and are listed as being in various states of condition .

Yes I have got and seen this book many times, it appears if you order most of the ones sold online you do not get this book, Pearl tried many times

So was this comic strip published in the Daily Star at the height of the show and how long did it run for [never read that paper and no desire to] , clearly nowhere near the length of time Andy Capp has appeared in the Mirror [since 1957]

Don't know about that Captain. I never bothered with newspapers except, Reveille of course. ;)

The code number is wrong, you end up with Getting Sam Home. I now have it because someone eyeballed it for me so I know I was getting the right one.
