I found this one very funny - though I don't think that some of the short stories were meant to be . . .

^^^^^^^^^^ Half a crown (two shillings and sixpence - 2/6) was a LOT in 1932. Very expensive book. But then, it does have a foreword by Baronet Sir William Arbuthnot-Lane M.S. . . . Whistle

This one is "Traditional English Cooking" by Janice Murfitt.

From what I can figure out, 2/6 would have bought 8 litres of petrol, so that's about £13 ($17) now - or three cinema tickets which is about £24 ($30). If you work in 'houses', a house (average) would cost 4000 times that book-price, so it would be £60 ($80).
