Just out of interest, I offered the guy a quid for it, using the eBay "Make an offer" thing.

He refused, but he deigned to lower his price:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CAMRAs-Peak-District-Pub-Walks-Revised-and-Updated-Edition-by-Steel-Bob-Auth/232685585826?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055359.m2763.l2649
Now only "£300.48 or from £14.18 per month for 24 months".

That is not bad. it's a £500 reduction, after all. However, I have decided to wait a bit, because CAMRA just sent me this email:

"New Edition
Camra's Peak District Pub Walks is being re-written and re-walked, even in the recent cold weather. The Author, Bob Steel has doggedly been sending us new routes, updates on Pubs and pictures as proof of his intrepid exploration.

We are excited about this new edition, as it promises to give something new to any readers of the previous edition, as well as introducing the newcomer to an area of outstanding natural beauty and heritage.

This book is available now for pre-order at a discounted rate for members.

Pre-order price £7.99 (excl p&p) RRP: £12.99."

It looks like that might make the bottom fall out of the old Peak Business beer walks business.

YOU MAY ALSO BE INTERESTED in another, similar book. It is published by the AA.
"30 Walks in Peak District (AA 40 Pub Walks)."
How much do you reckon that could be?

It is £1,451.71, or from £68.47 per month for 24 months. A total bargain!

I'd best stick to pubs I know; or maybe just those on Whatpub.com.
Thanks for the warning.
