An Antiquarian Book Fair is coming to Toronto this weekend and I'm hoping to stop by. R said 'Be sure to bring something home for yourself!' Then I started browsing some of the books on offer. This first edition, Virginia Woolf, and in fact, the first publication of Hogarth Press is on offer for an eye-watering $86,150 CDN.
If I won the lottery, I would pick this AA Milne up for Simon (do I really need to explain which Simon?). Also a first edition, The House at Pooh Corner is a very good deal at only $1,000 CDN.
And these three volumes of Emma *squeals with delight* by Jane Austen, are going for $27,000 CDN. It was sheer bliss to click on the galleries and go through the titles. Go ahead and daydream.
I will try my best to bring home a book but more than likely it will come from Nicholas Hoare, just down the road, and cost less than $20 *sigh*.
