Oxfam fortune

Talking of friends, and London...a friend works in Oxfam's Bloomsbury shop, where they not long ago received a number of very decent chess books. There's still a few left, available at very reasonable prices: check out the list, below.
  • Queen v Rook and Minor Piece Endings by Averbakh, Chekhover and Henkin : £10.00
  • Rook v Minor Piece Endings by Averbakh : £6.00
  • Sicilian Defence, Najdorf Variation by Nunn and Stean : £5.00
  • Flank Openings by Keene (second edition, 1970) : £4.00
  • Larsen's Selected Games of Chess : £4.00
  • Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (ed. Matanovic) : £5.00
Not so bad, eh? The shop is at 12 Bloomsbury Street, London WC1B 3QA. Their phone number is 020 7637 4610.

Note: I don't at time of publication know which volume of ECO is involved.
