Recently I have had a pretty good run and my two latest purchases are a linguaphone set for £15 pounds and the Book of Fairy Poetry by Dora Owen for $10.63.

The postage to ship the linguaphone set to Australia boasted the price a fair bit, but it was still worth the price.

i have just bought a new house and like Stu (with his fine car), I keep telling my girlfriend that i am not buying any more books for a while and I am going to contcentrate on cataloging my collection....it never seems to work out that way and you realise how much of an addiction collecting can be.

Looks like Mark Faith of Festival Art and Books bought it, as it has just popped up on Abebooks for £695 --so, again, not bought by a collector.

Agree Khamul but a nice book to have in collection. It wasnt on for long at all so appears demand strong. Think this is the highest i have seen paid for such a copy?

I was a member for a while but like others cant see any reason for joining now unless you intend to buy 'other' books . That being said the quality of most of he ones i brought was good.
I do like the 'brown' editions that being said i did pick them up cheap so no doubt this has affected my judgement!
