Watched the first episode of this program (Pawn Stars UK), they do not come across as Book Dealers, or have any knowledge whatsoever about books, even if they are first edition J.R.R. Tolkein Hobbits

Just catching up on threads since sunning myself on hols. Nice set Trotter - very strict criteria but some good looking wrappers

Is it an original Children's club wrapper ? If so that's good been after one for a while myself

Was thinking ? What about a thread on 'showing off your books/collection? I love seeing other people's books and maybe your photo could start it ? We have heard a lot about prized books in the past but would be great to have some photos all in one place if we think a good idea would one of you clearer people transfer it into a new thread ?


No, the cover of the Children's edition is a facsimile

It's great, can you split them into Ridiculous items (i.e. from Wonders) and all other auctions (i.e. from Interesting) and also if not to much work, re-listings of unsold items.

I notice that the wonderful "PROVENANCE: LONDON ANTIQUARY FIVE YEARS AGO" item is on about 5 relistings so far, with no-one buying Mr Formhal's signed copy

eBay Item #400558756447


"A Very Good, rare, sixth impression, third edition, hardback book in a Very Good, clipped d.j. Not ex-library. Book shows shelf wear, particularly to spine ends, light creasing to corners of first two pages and a little light browning marks to front pastedowns (possibly from tape transfer, which seems to have been uses on a jacket protector - see picture). D.j. shows wear, creasing, chipping, a couple of closed tears and brown lines at end of fold-over flaps (tape resudue, used to secure a protector at some point - see picture). For all these faults, still a very nice, clean, square and presentable copy of a rare classic from the master of fantasy. Published by George Allen and Unwin, 1971."

Yes, but is a £20-£30 book, would be nice if ebay sellers checked current prices before listing
