NEWS AT ANNASBOOKEMPORIUM FOR THE FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST 2010
I am currently auctioning the completed two volumes of Richard Holmes' Coleridge series, one is a 1st Edition, and the other a 1st Edition 3rd Impression. Both are Hardbacks with Dustjackets, and both are in either As New or Excellent Condition. The first book, Early Visions, won the 1989 Whitbread Prize for Book of the Year. They are being offered with £9.00 (Early Visions) and £8.00 (Darker Reflections) as starting bids.
I am also currently auctioning two classic childrens' books by the same publisher and same illustrator, which despite three years of publishing difference, make an attractive pair; The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame and The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne. Both are Hardbacks with Dustjackets, and in either Good or Very Good Condition. From £3.00 each as starting bids, they could make a great bargain, and will bring you and your children a lot of pleasure.
I have a lot of non-fiction books up for auction at the moment, including a number of literary biographies. Over the next week there will be more biographies, some historical non-fiction, and a little bit of fiction. Many of these will be 1st Editions, and almost all are Hardbacks with Dustjackets. By the end of the week there will be an influx of Hardback Enid Blyton books. A bit of a combination this week, to say the least. From Verdi and Coleridge to the Adventures of Binkle and Flip.
