Phill Irving Autobiography / Biography

As a new Dad, and probably not thinking too clearly I named my son Irving (second name only - at wife's request). Not being into "old" bikes he occasionally asks why? I had a thought that Phil Irving's autobiography would be a good stocking filler this Christmas, to answer his questions................ Phew!! £265 second hand !! Does anyone know of a supply at a more "stocking filler" price?

Is that the hardback or soft cover version? A hardback edition just sold on Australian e-bay for AUD$1025 (about £680). My copy is signed by Edith Irving as it was impossible to get PEI to sign one (he had passed away by the time the book was published).

I haven't a clue Alyn, I had this strange thought that I might have to go as high as £50, so when I saw the price I lost interest. I should have bought it when I got Tuning for Speed, Black Smoke et al, they seem to be selling for silly prices too.

Who owns the rights to the book? Any chance the VOC could get another printing done? I too wish I had bought a copy back when they were available. If I recall correctly, they were priced around 50 US$ back then (which I couldn't afford at the time...)

The publisher was Turton and Armstrong in Sydney, Australia. I guess they still own the copyright unless since sold.

Matthews 5 month old sons name is Vincent . Someone had to do it . Sid .

Jack Shaw bought a Vincent new in '53, still has it, first born's name is Vincent, now well into his 40's. Also Tony Cording's first born, named Vincent, and I'm sure many others around the world. Someone has already done it.
