An interesting article in The Telegraph on the madness of book collecting and this collection in particular.

Rebinding books is ok, but not when they are as messed up as this


The following auction is for a rare first printing copy of The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien. As the copyright page clearly shows, it is a first printing - there were only 3250 copies printed


$650 USD

I know some of our members have an interest in A.A. Milne and the fantastic illustrator E.H. Shepard and may be interested in the following.

Peter Harrington is very pleased to announce the exhibition and sale of the most comprehensive collection of Winnie-the-Pooh books and artwork ever assembled. Including more than one hundred items gathered together over twenty years by American football legend Pat McInally, the collection includes fine examples of all the Pooh books, important inscribed copies, correspondence and photos, toys, and original artwork. This is not only the best Pooh collection ever to come to market, but a superb example of the art of collecting, and everything that a lifetime collection in a single field should be. Illustrated below are some of the highlights, including the stand-out piece, a presentation copy of Winnie-the-Pooh inscribed from Milne to both Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. An exhibition of the material will be held in our gallery at 100 Fulham Road from Wednesday the 30th of November to Wednesday the 14th of December. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and paper and digital copies of the catalogue can be obtained by contacting us.
