I have seen eBay ranging from £50 to £100 depending on the condition and the number of bidders.  I am sure the person who is selling would be willing to negotiate.

Neil - just to let you know that its worth a fair bit, especially in good condition and with that original cover.  I'm not sure exactly how much but potentially 3 figures to the right person.

I hope you find a QE2 enthusiasts who wants to purchase the item. 

The QE2 Transart brochure is a desirable item.  I purchased one on ebay a few years ago and I think it cost me around £75 at the time.  There was a lot of interest from bidders.

Buyer beware - just a bit of advice if you are looking for one of the Transart brochures on E-bay or other location.  Ask questions such as:

- are all pages present
- is the hardcover damaged
- do any of the pages, especially the acetates have any damage
- is it musty and to what extent
- is the deck plan included
- is the original cardboard jacket included and what is its condition

I negotiated one on E-bay for 25 GBP knowing it had some issues.  If I had asked additional questions, I probably could have paid less.  Regardless, the one I received (gift for my father) was in good condition especially for being almost 50 years old.
