Corkscrews: British registered designs
by Frank Ellis and Barbara Ellis

One of the first recipients said" What a masterpiece!! You do not have to apologise for the price. I always say that I remember how much I paid for a bad meal, even if it is cheap. I never remember the cost of a good meal, just the occasion. I think this book is a feast!! "

A well know writer of corkscrew books said "FANTASTIC!  I am really impressed by the content, the layout, and the color scheme.  The book is a must for every serious corkscrew collector."

Another long time collector wrote "It is OUTSTANDING.  The research, scholarly effort and quality of production has produced a bible for all corkscrew collectors."

At the 2007 Canadian Corkscrew Collectors Club meeting in Copenhagen, the book was greeted enthusiastically and 40 books were sold over the 3 days.  Everyone praised the high quality of the content, design and printing.

The price of this lavish book is £90.00   plus postage & packing:

The book, plus its sturdy cardboard wrapping weighs 2.29 kg (5 lbs) so postage is expensive:

  • To UK - please add £9.00
  • To Europe please add £13.10
  • To USA, Australia and rest of the world please add £24.66 for Airmail or £13.22 for surface mail (which could take up to 8 weeks)

Postage to Canada is a problem. There is a 2 kg maximum limit for the cheaper Printed Paper rates to Canada.  This book must therefore go normal parcel rate which is over £33 for 4 week delivery and £42 for 5 day delivery.

Prices correct at time of publishing.

There is no insurance on standard Airmail.  I will obtain proof of postage but will not be held responsible for packages lost or damaged by the mail services.
