The Bilbury Chronicles by Vernon Coleman

The Bilbury Chronicles by Vernon Coleman hits the £1 shelf in my shop.

Chilton Designs, 1996, Hardback in dust wrapper.

Signed by the author on the title page unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: The Bilbury Chronicles is the first of a series of books describing the adventures (and misadventures) of a young doctor who enters general practice as an 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 doesnt realise how much he has to learn. But he soon finds the true extent of his ignorance when he meets his patients.

Theres Anne Thwaites, who gives birth to her first baby in a field; Thumper Robinson who knows a few tricks that arent in any textbooks and Mike Trickle, a TV quiz show host who causes great excitement when he buys a house in the village.

Then theres 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.

Theres 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.
