Well done! I know how it feels to have something that we have been seeking for so long. :D

Except the £215 copy one back in May 2017! The most pristine copy that I have ever laid my eyes on! :D

Now we know the reason it went beyond £200! The scarce book in pristine condition.

Is this book hard to get hold of in the original edition too?

Not quite so hard, Pete. But not all that easy either!! :lol:

they are a 'bit' cheaper though - I got my Very Good copy of The Secret of the Old Mill for £16 on eBay in 2016. :-D

hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes

but they are as scarce as hen's teeth.


I wouldn't be so sure about hen's teeth being scarce. Some scientists are playing with the DNA ob birds (hens included) and they already found the trigger to let them grow teeth again.

I have a pdf copy of At Seaside Cottage 1947 edition and at current prices it looks like that's the way it's going to stay!!!!

It was a nuisance. An adventure was one thing - but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing. That wouldn't do at all. (The Valley of Adventure)
