For as long as I can remember I have been posting updates on the going price for a first edition copy of Swallows and Amazons. A good clean 1st Edn complete with Spurrier design dustjacket has just sold in London for 7,500 (estimate 5,000-7,000). At the same sale a 2nd (first illustrated) Edn. S&A went for 1,500, and a 1st Edn. Swallowdale went for 1,800. S&A continues its gradual rise in value, but it is noticeable that the sequel 1st Edns. are now beginning to attract serious collectors.
