This form will search the category History and Politics: Social History. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search the category History and Politics: Social History. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

London Lesbian & Gay Pride 1985 - Original Pride '85 Badge - 3rd Issue

London Lesbian & Gay Pride Organising Committee, London
Original 1.5 inch diameter lapel badge. This is one of the third tranche of Pride '85 badges, made in January or February 1985 on a hand-operated badge press and with the pink colouring done by hand. The design is a variant on the original badge design by John Williams, having rather better artwork than the previous versions, with the date of the march, 29th June, above the logo and 'I'll be there!' below it. Approximately 300 of this third type were made. This is the last of the hand-made badges, afterwards all Pride '85 badges were made by a commercial supplier and were of the same diameter, but thinner and noticeably flatter. Full provenance is available.
