It seems that this collection of AR first editions did not sell. The bottom estimate of £8,000 must have been too high. If this is true, then the auctioneers probably over-valued the books other than ‘Swallows and Amazons’. I read today in ‘Jibbooms and Bobstays’, the admirable Newsletter of the Nancy Blackett Trust, that for their marathon all-day reading of ‘We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea’ in October they obtained a first edition for just £30.
