First edition, first print hardback of THE BILBURY CHRONICLES, by Vernon Coleman and published by Chilton Designs Publishers, Devon, in 1992. Signed by Coleman on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean yellow cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine) with minor wear to the pictorial dust jacket which is not price clipped (light creasing to edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. There is very slight yellowing to the pages.

Vernon Coleman is the author of 114 books which have sold over 2 million copies in the UK, been translated into 23 languages and now sell in over 50 countries. His non-fiction books include Bodypower (voted one of the nation's 100 most popular books by British readers) and How To Stop Your Doctor Killing You and his novels include Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War (which has been turned into a major movie starring Pauline Collins) and the Bilbury series of books.

Vernon Coleman has a medical degree and has worked as a GP and a hospital doctor. Often described as an 'iconoclast' he has organised numerous campaigns for people and for animals. Although he now concentrates on writing books he has in the past presented numerous programmes on television (he was breakfast TV's first doctor) and radio and has written over 5,000 columns and articles for over 100 of the world's leading newspapers and magazines.

"The Bilbury Chroniclesis the first of a series of books describing the adventures (and misadventures) of a young doctor who enters general practice as assistant to an elderly and rather eccentric doctor in North Devon.

When he arrives in Bilbury, a small village on the edge of Exmoor, the young doctor doesn’t realise how much he has to learn. But he soon finds the true extent of his ignorance when he meets his patients.

There’s Anne Thwaites, who gives birth to her first baby in a field; Thumper Robinson who knows a few tricks that aren’t in any textbooks and Mike Trickle, a TV quiz show host who causes great excitement when he buys a house in the village.

Then there’s elderly Dr Brownlow himself who lives in a house that looks like a castle, drives an old Rolls Royce and patches his stethoscope with a bicycle inner tube repair kit; Frank the inebriate landlord of the Duck and Puddle and Peter who runs the village shop, drives the local taxi, delivers the mail and works as the local undertaker.

There’s Miss Johnson, the receptionist with a look that can curdle milk; Mrs Wilson the buxom district nurse and Len her husband who is the local policeman with an embarrassing secret."
