I hope this is of some help. Not on any one table, other than a poor Vintage Cars, did I see any of the sought after high numbers. With the unusual high numbers of Jazz and Big Bands I spotted on sale, I just didn't think any one would be interested in your two books John, even though some on show were grotty, thus with the many on sale that I'd seen, I was then reluctantly considering auctioning them.
Even so, by Warne had published the first six Observer's books. What are they made of?
