  1. Unfortunately I know only too well that will not include Life Members. It cost me £4.55 per month to borrow and keep for an extended period, The Cambridge History of Science (VolII) on InterLibrary Loan from the British Library. Eventually thought of buying (!) but body-swerved an online source quoting (I think?) £300. Now returned the book, but somehow I still feel that I have funded the British Library several times over! Okay, i’m just a grumpy old man – Life Membership is a wonderful privilege ….. …. but still!
