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

I don't think you would get a copy of the same book as in the picture, very nice if you did.
