Something special came through the post today. Over the last few years I have been slowly collecting every guidebook that has been published about climbing in Malta. I was lucky enough to find a reasonably priced clean copy in good condition of this book that was printed three times from 1949 to 1960. It has taken some time, as copies of this title are not often available, and generally over-priced. Unfortunately, the publisher closed down their entire book division some years ago, and I was unable to find any old stock. In fact, the only copy I found locally was a reference one in the national library. At least that allowed me to browse and make notes while I waited for something like this to happen.
Now, the only book left for my collection is Hancock’s “The Adventure Guidebook to the Maltese Islands”.
