The Bible for the 1,000 or so extant stone circles in the British Isles. Few photos, all b & w. But the line drawings of the plans of the circles are really good. If you are going to visit Britain and are interested in such things, read this book. It's a bit heavy, so you wouldn't want to haul it around with you. Don't know if there is an ebook edition.
