Belated thanks for the reminder, Steve,

I was a bit pre-occupied with other things, and only read your post tonight.

Terrific value for money, but ...

I just noticed something I found amusing.... I was looking at a first edition of The Quest of Julian Day, to check the collation. On the spine of the dust jacket it proudly proclaims '432 pages 8/6 Net' But the novel itself starts on page 11, and ends on page 422. I wonder if anyone noticed ? :D

Alan, Point taken re getting back to your fascinating suggestion for a thread. I'd happily choose the Duke or Lucretia, or any of their gang, because I am so fond of the Duke myself. But if you want someone a little recherché, I give you, even if he isn't in an incarnation at the moment, the genial...

I'll await others' answers with interest !

DW's First Gift Box

Dear All, As you know, DW's First Gift Box (see page http://www.denniswheatley.info/firsteditions02.htm) is a very rare item. I think I have only ever seen two complete Boxes, although I have also very occasionally seen individual books that must have come out of such sets - they are characterised b...
