'I count myself in nothing else so happy, as in a soul remembering my good friends.' (Richard II), E.M. Walker". Loosely laid in is a poem about books, also signed by E.M. Walker. Also laid in is a copy of the address given at St. Andrews, Biggleswade on 20th October, 1985, at a service of thanksgiving, by Frederick H. Buller together with a printed and signed note from Ron Coleby (dated 26 Jan 86) to a former owner stating "...At last I have managed to have a photocopy made of the Richard Walker memorial address and this I enclose for your Walker collection". All in all a very interesting association copy that would make a fine addition to any Walker collection.
