Ok here are a few photos from me.

The first are two of my favourites. Beowulf not because it is especially rare as you can buy on abe (if have the funds) but because it was a real bargain £125. Had to have some stickers removed but it has come up a treat & camshell adds to it i think.

The second is Devils. Ironically this was one of my very early purchases and i have never seen one for sale since. My copy was alledgedly kept in a safe since purchase in the 40's and this could be true as condition for such a flimsy booklet is excellent. Whether there is any truth in it bringing to life Balrog I am not sure but a facinating read.

The final photo is part of my collection. The HOME & other reference books are elsewhere.

Will snap some more when get around to it

Enjoy

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 ?

Blimey I would have started earlier
Where are you moving too, within NZ ?
Moves are always stressful for sure. I only had to move my books once thank goodness , it was a mare.
Good luck
If you want me to look after any for you do let me know

Reply from seller:
Thank you very much for your email. I am quite surprise about it.I bought it in London around 7 years ago, it cost me 1000 pounds, I think I have the invoice from an antiquary shop.Why you are so sure that its a fake???, I think its so frivolous...Please send me all the info that you have to attest it, and I will check it myself with a specialist person. If its a fake I will remove it, but never before.

7 years ago - mmmmmm I think not

Lets hope the specialist person gives seller the seller the same message
