    Post Office First Hard Cover #195 - $799

    Just sold on ebay - I know the spine is faded - but so are probably more than 200 of the 250 copies! That seems super cheap for such an important book and a massive discount to even a year ago. Bargain!

    The Captain prints

    The five prints recently offered on ebay nearly all went for pretty decent money. The person would have almost been better pooling his money together and buying the book containing the prints. Here is a link to one of the prints. Bidding all done...
