Before I clicked on the link I guessed it would have sold for in excess of £10,000 as two to three thousand was way too small a estimate. Probably the only British title I don't have an example of. ("Of which I do not have an example" I should say as I normally take people to task for ending a sentence with a preposition). What was I thinking of....?

To quote Colonel Jack O'Neil of Stargate "You b******! I hate it when people end a sentence with a preposition!" :)

Actually I don't think many English grammarians take that old injunction very seriously these days.

Nice to know, as I do have 17 of those 24 and 58 of the 80 over all. I got my copy of number 1 from a fellow collector called Stan Jenks some 35 years ago for the princely sum of £60.
