Question for Derek in Perth

Roy Girolami
Derek, I have two books that were given me by a friend. Her father was in Australia in WW2 and picked them up. Both were written by R.T. Baker and are The Hardwoods of Australia and their Economics and Cabinet Timbers of Australia. They were published in 1919 and 1913, respectively. They seem to be pretty nice with color photos of the wood and some pictures of the usage of them. I looked one of them up on the Internet and got a ridiculous asking price. So since you are the only Australian I have any way of contacting, I'm sort of asking your opinion of what do I have here.

Thanks for any response.
