Purchased on the cheap at Haslam's Book Store in St. Petersburg, Florida.

I may attempt this at some point, but this very special copy was acquired specially for release by Team Iron for Turn 10 of Bookcrossing Monopoly!

That handsome gent to your left is D.H. Lawrence, the author of the book...

On a totally unrelated note, anyone remember the Disney version of Robin Hood?

These people come together for Team Iron's Nottingham themed release for Turn 10 of Bookcrossing Monopoly!

D.H. Lawrence was born in Eastwood, just outside of Nottingham. He later attended Nottingham High School, and received a teaching certificate from the University College of Nottingham!

William Booth was born in Nottingham. This Christian movement had spread throughout the globe, as evidenced by the store right here in St. Petersburg, Florida, and continues to distribute humanitarian aid. Despite their connection, it is quite likely that these two gentlemen would not have been friends.

There are other small symbols of Nottingham in this package, too! Nottingham is famous for its fabric production during the industrial revolution, most particularly for its lace. It's hard to see in the picture, but the fabric pouch in this release said Made in New England. Obviously, that was an error, so I just crossed out the "New" to make it say was it was supposed to say: Made in England.

Modern Nottingham is a big tourist attraction. They have beautiful parks and gardens, such as the 500-acre Wollaton Park. They are known for its link with Robin Hood... who was portrayed as a fox in the Disney adaptation. And today's Nottingham is also famous for its collection of pubs!
