Some Thanet pictures, and how to open a book
I managed to find higher definition wosisnames, computer thingys of the old aerial photos of Ramsgate, viewed on my blog, if you click on them to expand them and then click on them again so they get even bigger.
The rest, you should be able to work out the approximate what and when, feel free to comment on them and I will try to reply if it seems the right thing to do.
Here in the book business there are mostly two types of books, the sewed ones, where the pages are held in by bookbinders thread and the prefect bound ones where the edges of the pages are suck in with glue.
In both cases when you get a new book or a book that hasn’t been used for a long time following these rather finicky instructions do actually help produce a more flexible and even curve in the spine, something that helps the book to last longer and better - biblical or secular.
For the dedicated followers here are the books that went on the shelves in my bookshop in Ramsgate today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/the-frackers-in-bookshop.html
