If you are a regular reader of this blog, you might remember me mentioning a rare Rupert annual coming up for sale at auction. See the original post here. Bloomsbury Auctions estimated the value as £18000 to £22000 but in the end bidding stalled at £13000 and the annual went unsold. Sotheby’s had a rather better outcome when a first edition Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone containing personal annotations and illustrations by author J.K. Rowling sold for £150,000. It might be time to check your lofts, basements and outhouses in the hope of finding a copy!
For the joy of books; Catherine over at An Angel in the garden has written a lovely post about her favourite book shop. If you love books prepare to fall in love with this shop and with Catherine's blog!
That's all folks!
