Gallery - pictures of some of our books

Here is a mini-section to display some of the more attractive-looking books in our stock. It's very new, and I haven't quite got the hang of editing multiple pages to fit the pop-up box. Not all the images do justice to the originals, yet. I'm working on it...
You have to close the pop-up window before you can open another.
