Once the Christmas junk starts appearing in the shops BEFORE Easter, I'm going out and shooting myself.

Wow, that really is a terrible copy. "Please be happy before you bid!" indeed.

I love the writing in the book, £45 for this edition, which should be about £0.49 with free postage

One of the pages of the ex-library copy has "down with skool" scribbled in it, suspect the writer probably did not read much of the book :(

Haven't really delved into the earlier editions (I know 1961 is hardly early) but I guess the value curve falls off sharply after the 1/1 UK.

You can get an idea of prices here:

Completely knackered books (such as ones covered in kids' scrawl) are essentially worth nothing, unless quite early.
