If Santa didn’t bring you quite what you wanted this Christmas, please allow us to draw your attention to a few items of Wolverhampton Wanderers literature.
Our sister company Thomas Publications have recently come by a copy of two books that have not been on the shelves for many, many years and have them up for sale here, on a first-come-first-served basis, at £15 each.
Memories of Molineux was written in 1996 by Steve Gordos and David Instone and was produced as a partnership between the Express & Star and Breedon Books.
This 208-page, A4 hard-back is crammed with pictures not only out of the paper’s extensive archive but also many from the personal collections of readers, who loaned them for use.
The publication sold in big numbers and was not reprinted, so this is a rare opportunity to get your hands on a copy.
Also, we have a copy of the 1989 Encyclopedia of Wolverhampton Wanderers – effectively the first ‘complete record’ ever published about the club. It was compiled by Tony Matthews, with help from Les Smith.
Although the publication was updated in the early 1990s and then again either side of Wolves’ 2009 Championship triumph, this original has much to commend it – more than 300 pages for a start.
It also has substantial sections that don’t appear in the later editions, such as detailed goal-scoring feats, a comprehensive list of friendlies played by the club and a spotlight on the reserves and youth teams.
We stress that we have only one copy of each of these two books and will sell them to the first person who comes forward. The £15 price does not include post and packing.
Please be reminded that Thomas Publications also have a variety of other titles for sale, some of them autographed by a host of Wolves stars.
